Former Sevilla Coach Joaquin Caparros will return to the club according to president Jose Castro, although it is unclear in what capacity he will act.
Caparros, 62, has managed 13 clubs across Spanish football with his most famous stint a five-year spell at Sevilla between 2000 and 2005.
Most recently, Caparros managed Osasuna between November and January last season but his side only won once in his eight matches in charge before spending six months at Qatari club Al Ahli.
“We have already spoken with him and we will see what his role will be,” Castro told Onda Cero on Tuesday evening.
“He will be working with us, but at the moment I still cannot clarify any further details regarding the situation.
“Not everything is clear and as things stand we are studying the situation, but Joaquin has been on our agenda for a long time.
“We are thinking about restructuring our output and we will see what his role will be.”
There had been rumours that Caparros would replace Montella, but Los Rojiblancos confirmed the Italian would remain in his role for the time being.
