Sevilla agree deal to sign Nolito from Manchester City

With Man City set to offload a few first team players, Shaka Hislop breaks down which fringe players they can do without.

Sevilla have reached an agreement in principle with Manchester City for the transfer of winger Nolito, the Spanish club announced on Saturday night.

Nolito will have a medical in the coming days before signing a three-year deal, Sevilla said. The transfer fee has been reported to be about €9 million (£7.9m), after City paid €18m for him a year ago.

The 30-year-old appeared in 30 games in all competitions in his only season with Man City, scoring six goals. He started only nine games in the Premier League and now returns to La Liga, where he starred for Celta Vigo from 2013-16.

Nolito had another three seasons on his City contract but said in May that he was "crazy about returning to Spain." 

Nolito is set to leave Manchester City after just one season.

"I hope I can leave, whether it's on loan, a transfer or whatever. I have several teams I'd prefer to join," Nolito said.

Sevilla have been busy this summer as they prepare for the Champions League playoff round, with Luis Muriel, Ever Banega, Guido Pizarro and Sebastian Corchia already joining, while Vitolo, Adil Rami and Vicente Iborra have all departed.

The club have also expressed interest in bringing back Jesus Navas, whose contract recently expired at Man City, while Stevan Jovetic, another former City player, is expected to leave.
