Nottingham Forest have signed Portugal Under-20 defender Hildeberto Pereira from Benfica on a season-long loan.

The 20-year-old is yet to play for Benfica in the Primeira Liga, featuring instead for the club’s B team in Portugal’s second division.

He is the third Forest addition since Philippe Montanier became head coach.

The Frenchman said earlier this week the club would not rush to make more signings unless Lionel Messi or Neymar wanted “to come to Nottingham”.
