Felipe is an experienced centre-back who has accumulated over 300 appearances in his career, mainly at Atletico and Porto.

The Brazilian also enjoyed success at both clubs, winning their respective league titles in 2020/21 and 2017/18. He also helped Corinthians win the FIFA Club World Cup in 2012, beating Chelsea 1-0 in the final.

Navas moves to Forest with a storied career, having won three UEFA Champions Leagues and one LaLiga title at Real Madrid before moving to PSG in 2019. 

Shelvey arrives with plenty of Premier League experience, having played 270 times in the competition, scoring 23 goals for Liverpool, Swansea City and Newcastle.

“It’s a pleasure to be here," Shelvey told the club's official website. “My main goal straight away is to fight for my place in the team and stay there.

"It’s not going to be easy because there’s a lot of competition for places, but it’s a challenge I’m really looking forward to and the competitiveness can only help the team going forward."
