Vicente Iborra left Sevilla for Leicester City in 2017 and the former tried to re-sign the midfielder earlier in the summer, but the deal didn’t take shape.
The 30-year-old also confirmed the Spanish club’s interest in bringing him back to the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, but said the Foxes convinced him to stay.
He’s played only 170 minutes in the Premier League spread across seven appearances and is still attracting interest from his previous employer, according to El Gol Digital.
It’s claimed the defensive midfielder has made up his mind on leaving Claude Puel’s side and returning to Spain in January.
Sevilla are still keen on acquiring his services, while another former club, Levante, are also in the race for Iborra’s signature.
The report mentions the player is clear about his future plan and has now decided to return to Levante, instead of joining Los Nervionenses.
His decision to reject Sevilla has not gone down well with them as ‘anger is total’. Pablo Machín’s side respect Iborra’s decision, but they are of the belief they are the best suited club for him than their league rivals.
Sevilla are looking for a revenge as El Gol Digital mentions they are planning to go after Levante’s José Campaña.
