Sevilla signs Nolito from Manchester City

Manchester City forward Nolito arrived on Sunday in Spain to undergo a medical and sign a three-year contract with Spanish football lub Sevilla.

Nolito, a Spain worldwide of 16 caps and six goals, joined City from Celta Vigo for £13.8m just 12 months ago but the Premier League side have cut their losses.

Half of those goals came in his first three games.

With Nolito set for a return to La Liga, it'll be interesting to see if City boss Guardiola feels the need to replace the winger, or whether the Spaniard is happy with his current squad depth. It is thought that the deal to take Nolito back to Spain is worth around €9 (£7.9m).

The team have already travelled to Japan for their pre-season tour and Nolito is expected to join them on Tuesday and at least get acquainted before the sea on starts.

There have been various reports of a fee, but the Spanish media seem to have settle on something in the region of £7.9million (€9million), a considerable hit on the £13.8million that City paid previous year, but not too surprising considering his desire to return to Spain after rarely featuring during the second half of last season.

The arrival of Nolito adds to those of Luis Muriel, Ever Banega, Guido Pizarro and Sebastien Corchia.
