Nolito seals Eastlands exit
Nolito has ended an unhappy one-year spell at Manchester City after returning to his homeland on a three-year contract with Sevilla.
The Spain international became Pep Guardiola's first signing as City manager when he joined from Celta Vigo 12 months ago, but he failed to make the desired impact at Eastlands.
After being deemed surplus to requirements for the new season, having started just 14 games in all competitions under Guardiola last term, Nolito was allowed to negotiate a deal with Los Rojiblancos.
The 30-year-old winger successfully completed his medical at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan on Sunday morning before committing his future to the La Liga club until 2020, in a move that reunites him with former Celta head coach Eduardo Berizzo.
Nolito will now make ready to jet off to Japan, where Berizzo's squad are on tour as part of their pre-season preparations.
The Citizens confirmed his switch in a statement, which read: "Manchester City have reached an agreement with Sevilla over the permanent transfer of Nolito.
"The Spanish winger, who joined the club last summer from Celta Vigo, made 30 appearances in his one season with City, scoring six goals.
"Everyone at City would like to wish Nolito well with his move."
