Nolito completes £8m Sevilla move

Nolito completes £8m Sevilla move

Manchester City flop Nolito is close to a return to Spain with Sevilla.

The Premier League club brought Nolito in for £13.8million last summer from Celta Vigo but he failed to become a regular under Pep Guardiola.

The Spaniard started brightly at the Etihad with three goals in his first three matches, but he soon tumbled down the pecking order under boss Pep Guardiola. However, he went on to make only nine league starts in total and none of those were in 2017.

The transfer is likely to be sealed by the end of the weekend, with the Andalusians paying around nine million euros for the Spanish worldwide winger.

Nolito has 16 caps for Spain and has bagged 6 goals.

Trespassers from Bangladesh and Nepal were stirring up unrest in the state with political motivation, she had alleged. However, pro-Gorkhaland leaders have denied any allegation regarding support by "foreign" hands in the agitation.

The report claims that they will also try to sign former Manchester City forward Stevan Jovetic and Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma this summer.

"I hope I can leave, whether it's on loan, a transfer or whatever".

The arrival of Nolito adds to those of Luis Muriel, Ever Banega, Guido Pizarro and Sebastian Corchia, while Vitolo, Adil Rami and Vicente Iborra have been among the players to leave Sevilla in a busy transfer window.

He underwent a medical with Sevilla on Sunday and is now expected to join up with the squad on their pre-season trip to Japan.
