Sevilla have confirmed Emir Spahic’s exit to Anzhi Makhachkala on an initial loan basis, describing it as ‘extremely economically advantageous’.
The Bosnian centre-back flew out to Moscow earlier this week to complete terms on an initial loan until the end of the season, with the Russians then having a purchase option included so as to make it permanent at any stage up until then.
Spahic was confirmed via a brief statement on Sevilla’s official website as having completed the move in time for the close of the Russian transfer window. It is said to be worth €2.3m for the first six months, and then a possible further €1.1m.
“The agreement of the transfer of the Bosnian international is extremely economically advantageous for the club, which has logically been given the green light by the technical staff,” ended the posting by Los Nervionenses.
Sevilla are known to be carrying a substantial debt and are seen as open to selling players to help service it.
