Manchester City's Nolito to have Sevilla medical

The Spain global Nolito has returned to his home country to complete a medical after Sevilla announced they had reached an agreement with City to sign the 30-year-old forward for around £7.9m.

There have been various reports of a fee, but the Spanish media seem to have settle on something in the region of £7.9million (€9million), a considerable hit on the £13.8million that City paid previous year, but not too surprising considering his desire to return to Spain after rarely featuring during the second half of last season.

Nolito will also be reunited with his former manager at Celta Vigo in Eduardo Berizzo, who succeeded Jorge Sampaoli earlier in the summer, and it was his form during the 2015/16 campaign which convinced City to sign him last summer. He made 30 appearances in his one season with City and scored six goals. The Spaniard acknowledged at the end of the last season that he was looking to leave Man City to play more, particularly before the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Sevilla did not reveal the cost of the transfer.

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