Moreno signs Sevilla extension

Alberto Moreno has followed up his call to the Spain squad by signing a new five-year contract with Sevilla: “I’m the happiest kid in the world.”

The young full-back was today announced as the notable addition to Vicente del Bosque’s senior squad to face Belarus and Georgia in World Cup qualifying next week.

On from that, his club have confirmed that he has agreed and signed a new five-year contract, committing until June 2018, with a buyout clause of €30m set.

“I’m the happiest kid in the world. After renewing with the team I have always wanted to be at, the truth is that this is the great thing for a player and especially for me,” enthused Moreno today.

“I have been part of the club for 10 years and now I have received this reward, which I believe is merited. I am very happy.

“The commitment from Sevilla is clear to me. I have five years here and I want to enjoy them.

“The call-up to Spain? It is the second piece of good news I have received today. I’m very happy. I was with the medical team when I heard. I cannot ask for anything more. I’m the happiest person in the world.

“Hopefully I will leave Sevilla in a good position in the League when I go off to join the Spain squad. Things like today do not happen every day.

“It was a joy to realise that I will be playing with the best in the world, to be among them is an honour.”
