Sevilla midfielder Vicente Iborra has rejected the opportunity to join Crystal Palace this winter, his agent has revealed.
The Eagles were desperate for quality signings in the final days of the January window, and while they eventually recruited Luka Milivojevic, Patrick van Aanholt and Mamadou Sakho, they missed out on the los Rojiblancos star.
Vicente Iborra’s agent Mario Parri moved to reveal that his client rejected an offer from England.
“He told me: ‘I am already in a champion team,’” his agent Mario Parri told Radio Esport Valencia.
“Iborra had an offer on the table from an English club but has chosen to stay in the Sevilla , because he is very happy there.”
Estadio Deportivo has learned that Crystal Palace were the club in question, so it is not difficult to understand why Iborra decided to remain with the La Liga high-flyers, rather than join a Premier League basement club.
Vicente Iborra has been in excellent form ever since he joined Sevilla from Levante, scoring 22 goals in 98 La Liga appearances.
The 29-year-old only started 6 league fixtures this term, while making another 10 substitute outings, but still managed to score no fewer than five goals.
