Sevilla have announced the signing of Nolito from Manchester City.

The Spain forward has agreed a three-year deal and returns to Primera Liga after one disappointing season at the Etihad Stadium.

Sevilla are reported to have paid £7.9 million (Dh38m) for the 30-year-old player, who joined Pep Guardiola's City for £13.8m from Celta Vigo last summer.

Nolito, often playing in a wide midfield role, scored five goals in his first nine appearances for City but fell down the pecking order as Leroy Sane shone in the second half of the campaign.

He underwent a medical with Sevilla on Sunday and is now expected to join up with the squad on their pre-season trip to Japan.
