Nolito arrived in Spain on Sunday morning after his new club, Sevilla, announced last night that they had reached an agreement in principle to sign the 30-year-old from Manchester City.
The Spain international will end an unhappy spell in England by signing a three-year contract in Nervión once he passes his medical.
He has been snapped arriving in Seville this morning after arriving at San Pablo Airport, where he told fans “I want to win titles at Sevilla”. From the airport he immediately set off for his medical before visiting the offices of the Sánchez Pizjuán to sign his new contract.

The intention is for Nolito to head to Japan on Monday and join up with his new teammates under the orders of Eduardo Berizzo, who previously coached him at Celta Vigo.
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 last year, but not too surprising considering his desire to return to Spain after rarely featuring during the second half of last season.
