Nolito: I want to return to Celta one day

Manchester City frontman Nolito admits he is keen to return to Celta Vigo before the end of his playing career.

City splashed out around £14million to bring Nolito from La Liga outfit Celta during the summer and he has netted three times in nine Premier League appearances for Pep Guardiola’s side.

However, the 30-year-old is yet to begin any English lessons due to City’s Spanish contingent and has expressed a desire to eventually return to Celta.

"I miss Celta a lot. I would like to return. Provided I can, I will return,” he told Spanish newspaper Marca.

"My adaptation (in England) is going well. I felt a little alone but in the dressing room we speak a lot of Spanish.

"That is why I chose not to study English – with Pablo Zabaleta, David Silva, Jesus Navas, Sergio Aguero and lots of Spanish-speaking technical staff.

"Someday I will have to take the time to do it."

Nolito is currently with the Spanish squad ahead of a World Cup qualifier against Macedonia this weekend and remains enthusiastic about representing his country after only making his international debut aged 28.

"It's been an intense and very happy dream, I'm enjoying every time I come away with my country," he added.

"It's true that there have been lots of different players (called up), but I think that's good."
