Roque Mesa signs for Sevilla as exit door opens for PizarroMay 30, 2018
Sevilla have terms with Swansea City over a permanent deal for Roque Mesa, whilst Guido Pizarro is set to leave for Tigres.
The former Las Palmas midfielder moved to England last summer but had a torrid time with Swansea City, signing on a six month loan deal at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in January.
Despite penning a four-year deal with the Welsh club, relegation to the Championship has seen his exit to Sevilla speed up and be completed.
The 28-year-old midfielder has now agreed a three-year deal in Andalusia for a €8m transfer fee, with a further €2m in add-ons.
Meanwhile, his arrival will pave the way for Pizarro to leave for Tigres, who have confirmed their interest.
“We have been in contact with Pizarro for six months,” Miguel Angel Garza is cited as saying by Estadio Deportivo.
“It would be ideal for us to re-sign players who have been here before to boost the club and the squad, for players to come here who know the club.”
The 28-year-old now looks likely to be sold by Sevilla with Argentine side Boca Juniors also interested.
The defensive midfielder made 40 appearances last season, scoring two goals – but ultimately, the decision players coming in and out of the club will depend on sporting director Joaquin Caparros and new manager, Pablo Machin.
