Roque Mesa left Swansea City and joined Sevilla on loan in the January transfer window, just six months after signing for the English club. As a part of the loan move, the La Liga outfit had the option of signing the midfielder on a permanent deal.
Earlier, we reported the two clubs were yet to agree a fee for Mesa, despite Sevilla agreeing personal terms with the player.
Swansea were relegated from the Premier League and Sevilla were hoping to take advantage of the situation to further reduce the transfer fee.
According to Marca, Sevilla will now exercise the option of signing Mesa and will pay €8 million plus €2m in variables, depending on the objectives, to Swansea. The Canary Island-born midfielder will undergo his medical today ahead of his permanent switch to the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.
Mesa will sign a three-year deal with the Spanish club and will become new Sevilla manager Pablo Machin’s first signing at the club.
These Marca figures are different from others elsewhere and it will certainly be interesting to see what the Seville media report after the deal.
