Sevilla have secured a season-long loan deal for Reading midfielder Daniel Carrico, with a view to a permanent deal.
The former Portugal Under-21 international moved to the Madejski Stadium in January from Sporting Lisbon, but only made three appearances as the Berkshire club were relegated from the Premier League.
And the 24-year-old made no secret of his desire to leave Nigel Adkins’ side, following their drop into the Championship.
“Sevilla is a great club,” said Carrico. “I would love to play for them. I will not be staying at Reading.”
A statement on Sevilla’s website confirmed the deal is agreed between the two clubs, with personal terms settled and the switch will be finalised after a medical on Tuesday.
Carrico made 153 appearances for Sporting after making his debut against Pacos Ferreira in October 2008.
