After a long chase from multiple Premier League clubs and Saudi Arabia behemoths Al-Nasrs, PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas finally decided to join Nottingham Forest on loan until the end of the 2022-23 season.

PSG made the official announcement on Tuesday, on deadline day just a few minutes before the winter transfer window closed.

The veteran Costa Rica international will be loaned to Nott Forest for the next four months in a deal that does not include an option to buy the goalkeeper at the end of the loan.

Navas will return to PSG next summer with his deal at PSG running out on June 2024.

Navas developed on the youth teams at Deportivo Saprissa in his native country of Costa Rica, winning six domestic leagues as well as the 2005 CONCACAF Champions Cup. He later moved to the Spanish side Albacete (36 apps from 2010 to 2011) and then joined fellow Spaniards of Levante (70 apps from 2011 to 2014).

The experienced goalkeeper earned enough respect to join giants Real Madrid, where he spent five seasons. He played 162 games while winning three UEFA Champions Leagues, four FIFA Club World Cups, two UEFA Super Cups, one La Liga, and one Supercopa.

After spending ample time in Spain, the Costa Rica international (110 caps) joined Paris Saint-Germain in Sep. 2019. Over the course of his four seasons in Paris, Navas leaves PSG having appeared in 108 games in which he finished with 50 clean sheets.
