Sevilla's Botia turned down Swansea

Sevilla defender Alberto Botia has said he rejected a €6 million move to Swansea in January but is unsure whether he will stay at the Liga club for long because of his complex ownership situation.

Botia, 24, spent three seasons at Sporting Gijon before joining Sevilla last summer in a transfer that was reportedly financed by third-party investment fund the Doyen Group.

The former Barcelona youth-teamer could have been on the move again in January to join the large ex-La Liga contingent at the Welsh club, but told Estadio Deportivo he had rejected the idea.

"Yes, I knew about the offer, my agents told me about it, but we did not go any further,” he said. “I have a contract here and I still belong to Sevilla. I want to stay here. That is what I told them.”

Botia initially struggled to hold down a first team place at the Sanchez Pizjuan this season, but said: “Since the first day, I have had the intention to play well, win games and keep growing as a player. I like it here and still believe in myself.”

Estadio Deportivo reported that, should Botia play 27 games and Sevilla qualify for Europe, the club would have to pay the Doyen Group €2.5 million to take over his rights. He has played 21 games for the Andalucians, who are four points off a Europa League qualification spot.

Finding the €2.5 million needed for a summer deal could, however, be a challenge for rojiblancos president Jose Maria Del Nido, who has spoken of the heavily-indebted club’s need to balance its books.

Asked where he expected to play next season, Botia said he did not know. "I would like to stay at Sevilla next season,” he explained. “But I still do not know what the club wants.”

The Doyen Group also holds shares in Sevilla’s Alvaro Negredo, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Manu Del Moral, Jose Antonio Reyes and Miroslav Stevanovic, according to its website.
