Villarreal land Carlos Bacca

Villarreal will complete the signing of Milan striker Carlos Bacca on a season-long loan deal with an option to buy, say multiple reports.

Numerous media reports in both Spain and Italy suggest the Colombia international arrived at the club’s training ground earlier this week to sign a contract and complete his medical examinations.

The structure of the deal is said to be a year-long loan worth €2.5m up front with the option to make the move permanent in 2018 for a further €15.5m.

Sevilla had also been keen on a return for striker, who turns 31 next month, but the Yellow Submarine moved ahead in the deal following the departure of Roberto Soldado to Fenerbahce.

Bacca netted 49 goals in 108 appearances for Sevilla in his first spell between 2013 and 2015, winning back-to-back Europa League titles.
