How Nottingham Forest fans reacted to the surprise signing of Ryan Mendes.

Nottingham Forest have signed Ryan Mendes, after French side Lille confirmed the news via their official Twitter account.

The 25-year-old Cape Verde international joins on a year's loan, with an option to buy.

The winger played against Paris Saint-Germain just last month, and featured in the Europa League, and Champions League qualifiers last season.

Mendes is a right winger, who adds to Forest's options in attack, which could take a dent with Michail Antonio on the verge of an exit.

The Mail reported yesterday that Forest have accepted a £7 million offer from West Ham for Antonio.

Mendes is an experienced option who could give Forest the lift they need, and is the second highly rated loanee from abroad to join in the last fortnight, following Dutch midfielder Kyle Ebecilio. 

Forest remain under transfer embargo, permitted only to sign loan players and free agents.

Here is a look at how Forest fans reacted to the deal...
