Brasilairão Serie A side Atlético Mineiro have signed Chelsea forward Nathan on loan for a period of 12 months. The Minas Gerais side announced the move on Tuesday morning.

Nathan was signed from Atlético Paranaense in 205 and has since spent time on loan at Vitesse Arnhem, Amiens and Belenses in Portugal.

Nathan’s temporary deal with Galo will run until 30 June, 2019. Galo came close to signing the player in January, but talks broke down and the player went to Belenses instead.

Nathan’s Chelsea contract runs until June 2020 and he has yet to play a first team game for the London club.

The player arrived in Belo Horizonte on Sunday to undergo his medial and sign terms. He joined Chelsea for pre-season training, but was omitted from the squad that flew to Australia to take part in a pre-season tour.
