Willy Boly has become the 19th signing of the transfer window for Nottingham Forest after joining from Wolves. 

In a deal worth an initial £2.25m, Boly will provide defensive reinforcement for Steve Cooper’s newly-promoted team. 

Boly joined Wolves from Porto in 2018 and has been an integral part of the squad that has become an established Premier League side.

However, he has seen his game time reduced at Molineux under Bruno Lage and made just 10 appearances for the club last season. 

The defender is yet to feature this campaign and now has a new challenge with Steve Cooper’s men. 

The Ivorian will join the likes of Jesse Lingard, Cheikhou Kouyate, Neco Williams, Morgan Gibbs-White, Taiwo Awoniyi and Renan Lodi in Cooper’s squad.

The 31-year-old refused to play in Wolves’ 1-1 draw with Newcastle on Sunday and secured the move he wanted.

Forest add to their spending total of £140m with a fee that could eventually rise to £4.65million when add-ons are included. 

Forest have made a mixed start to the season and are currently in 15th place but have had tricky fixtures against Man City, Tottenham and West Ham. 

Next up, Forest welcome Bournemouth in one of Saturday’s 3:00pm kick-offs.
