Nottingham Forest sign Argentina’s Montiel from Sevilla


Nottingham Forest have signed Argentina defender Gonzalo Montiel from Sevilla on a season-long loan with an option to buy, the Premier League club said on Wednesday.

Financial details were not disclosed, but Argentine media reported the loan had a purchase option worth 11 million euros.

“I’m really happy to have joined this club. I’m coming here full of expectations, of getting to play and showing what I can do,” the 26-year-old said.

“I’m hungry to win things, to win trophies, now’s the time to show this. I’ve been watching the Premier League since I was child. As a player you want to play in the best league, and the Premier League is just that.”

Montiel made 72 appearances for Sevilla, scoring two goals and providing six assists, since joining from River Plate in 2021.

He helped the La Liga side win their seventh Europa League title last season by scoring the decisive penalty in the shootout to beat AS Roma in the final.

The right back, who has 23 caps for Argentina, also scored the last penalty to help his country beat France in last year’s World Cup final.
