Reyes, Sevilla part ways amicably

Jose Antonio Reyes was hailed as one of Sevilla's great icons after the player and club announced they had decided to part ways in the off-season.

The 32-year-old, who made over 250 appearances for the Spanish club, was instrumental in their remarkable Europa League streak which saw them lift the trophy in three consecutive years. The player himself has won the competition on another two occasions with Atletico Madrid.

Europa League honours aside, Reyes has a noteworthy collection of trophies, having enjoyed victorious seasons in both the Premier League and Spanish Primera Division with Arsenal and Real Madrid respectively.

"Jose Antonio Reyes leaves Sevilla," the club confirmed in a statement. "He has ended his contract with the Nervion club, thereby ending his second spell as a Sevillista, without a doubt the most successful on a collective level.

"In his two spells he has been an icon for Sevilla. He has always excelled thanks to his extreme quality and commitment to the club of his life.

"He has been one of the great emblems of the club, if not the greatest."

The winger is now without a contract and has been linked with a move to Turkish club Galatasaray.
