Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Keylor Navas will be heading to Nottingham Forest, where he’ll be the No. 1 goalkeeper for the Premier League club for the time being.
Navas has been relegated to the backup role at PSG, where he will help Forest attempt to remain in the Premier League. As a result, transfer window specialist Fabrizio Romano reported on Wednesday that Navas’ deal does not include any buy option.
It’s a straight loan between reigning Ligue 1 champions and The Reds, so the three-time UEFA Champions League winner will return to the French capital after the 2022-23 football season.

Navas will be the starting goalkeeper right away as current No. 1 goalkeeper Dean Henderson suffered a thigh strain in the Jan. 14 win over Leicester City and is likely to be ruled out until late February.
Should Forest remain in the Premier League and Navas plays a vital role in maintaining the club in England’s top-flight league, the English side could begin talks with PSG to keep him permanently for next season.
