Nottingham Forest have signed teenage Costa Rica midfielder Brandon Aguilera from LD Alajuelense.
Aguilera, who made his senior international debut against the United States in March, will join up with newly-promoted Forest after a six-month loan spell back in Costa Rica with Guanacasteca.
Forest said on their official website: “Nottingham Forest has completed the signing of 19-year-old Costa Rica midfielder Brandon Aguilera who joins from LD Alajuelense on a four-year contract.
