Sevilla confirm Kakuta

Sevilla have confirmed the free transfer signing of Chelsea winger Gael Kakuta, subject to a successful medical.

A statement on Los Rojiblancos’ official website reveals Kakuta, who spent last season on loan at Rayo Vallecano, will have a medical on Thursday.

Kakuta, 24 later in June, played 35 times under Paco Jemez, scoring five goals, and has also been loaned to Lazio, Vitesse Arnhem, Dijon, Bolton and Fulham in a peripatetic career, beginning at Lens before switching to England in 2008.

He made only 16 appearances for the Blues, six of them, one start, in the Premier League.
