Bristol Rovers manager Matt Taylor has revealed that speaking with Nottingham Forest and Brandon Aguilera he came to know that the 20-year-old has a mature head on his young shoulders and is willing to learn.


The League One club confirmed the signing of the Nottingham Forest player on loan for the season on deadline day.


The 20-year-old has come in to add top-flight experience to Taylor’s team, having earned his debut against Brentford last month.




Aguilera has also played international football with Costa Rica’s senior team, something that the Bristol Rovers manager believes will help him add quality to the squad moving forward.


“Obviously he’ll bring quality”, Taylor told his club’s official website.



“He’s an international footballer, he’s played in the Premier League, but he’s still young so he’s still learning his game.”


Giving an insight into his conversations with both the Premier League club as well as the player, the manager revealed how he has been made aware of Aguilera’s humble nature and mature head.



“He probably won’t have had experienced this type of level before, but from what we’ve spoke about with Forest speaking to the lad, he seems really humble, seems to have a mature head on young shoulders and wants to be willing to learn.


“I think he’ll learn a lot about himself in his game, his time here, but he’s clearly got some quality which will certainly add to our midfield.”


Aguilera moved to England in the summer of 2022 as a part of the squad overhaul following their promotion to the Premier League.
