Barcelona on Monday signed Malian midfielder Seydou Keita from Sevilla on a four-year deal, the Catalan club said.
“Seydou Keita signed a contract committing him to Barcelona for the next four seasons, or until June 20, 2012,” Barcelona said in a statement.
It did not reveal the transfer fee, but Spanish news reports said it was 14 million euros.
Keita, 28, is expected to replace Portugal's Deco, who has announced he wants to leave the Nou Camp.
Barca are also interested in another Sevilla player, Brazilian defender Dani Alves.
