Sevilla confirm Quincy Promes deal

Sevilla have confirmed the signing of Spartak Moscow winger Quincy Promes on a five-year contract, the club have confirmed.

The Russian-based player watched their Europa League tie against Sigma Olomouc and underwent a medical with the Spanish side on Friday.

On Tuesday, Sevilla Info initially reported the Andalusian club’s interest in signing the Dutch international, who has netted 59 goals in 115 Russian Premier League matches.

On Thursday, fresh reports suggested the player wanted his €3m salary as net and not gross, meaning his agreement with Sevilla has broken down despite a €21m fee being agreed.

The 26-year-old netted two goals as Spartak defeated Los Rojiblancos 5-1 in the Champions League last season but the club have failed to make the same stage this campaign.

Promes, who operates mainly as a winger, has been capped 28 times by the Netherlands and scoring five goals.
