On August 8th, Cadena SER journalist Yago de Vega reported that Sevilla goalkeeper Sergio Rico will join Fulham on a season-long loan deal.
The newly promoted Premier League club have already completed the signing of Fabricio Agosto Ramírez, simply known as Fabri, from Besiktas on a three-year deal in July.
Leicester City signed Vicente Iborra from Sevilla last summer and the midfielder has now pretty much confirmed that Rico will move to the Premier League. During an interview with El Partidazo de Cope, the Foxes player was asked about his former teammates in England and that is when he said the 24-year-old will leave Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
“Here, I have a relationship with Alberto Moreno, Sergio Rico, who will come here and with the rest of the Spaniards, that whenever I see, I talk to them,” Iborra said, as quoted by Estadio Deportivo.
It is also claimed that Rico already has his bags packed in order to make a switch to Fulham, where he will compete with his compatriot, Fabri, for a place in the starting lineup.
