Celta Vigo have signed Nolito.

New Celta coach Luis Enrique signed the 26-year-old Nolito to a four-year contract after first encountering the striker during their time together at Barcelona.

Nolito, who spent three years at the Nou Camp, was loaned out Celta’s La Liga rivals, Granada, last season, scoring three goals in 17 appearances.

And according to Eurosport, Nolito said that he would be doing his best to help Celta avoid another relegation battle which almost claimed the club last season.

"The goal for the club is to maintain top-flight status and I am not setting myself a target for goals."
