Sevilla sign Nolito from Manchester City on three-year contract

Sevilla says it has reached a deal with Manchester City to acquire forward Manuel "Nolito" Agudo.

City have had a number of requests to take Nolito on loan but were determined to hold out for a fee.

Nolito has scored six worldwide goals in 16 appearances, but struggled to nail down a regular first-team place under City coach Pep Guardiola last term.

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.

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

The negotiation is expected to be complicated, as May's minority government will face challenges at every step in the process. This was "more a technical argument" and still had to be negotiated with the EU, Fox said.

Sevilla, who finished fourth place in La Liga last season, have intensified their pursuit of Nolito after selling influential forward Vitolo to Atletico Madrid for 36 million euros (£31.5m) last week.

"I'm insane to return to Spain, I'd like to leave Manchester City whether it's on loan or permanently, whichever way possible", he said.

The intention is for Nolito to head to Japan on Monday and join up with his new teammates under the orders of Eduardo Berizzo, who previously coached him at Celta Vigo.

He becomes the Andalusians' fifth summer capture after Ever Banega, Sebastien Corchia, Guido Pizarro and Luis Muriel.
