Sevilla sign Jovetic from Inter

Sevilla have bolstered their strike force with the addition of Stevan Jovetic on loan from Inter Milan until the end of the season.

The La Liga club announced the signing on Tuesday with a tweet of Jovetic holding a Sevilla shirt.

The Montenegro international has fallen out of favour at the San Siro this season, making just five appearances in Serie A as a substitute, racking up just 67 minutes of first-team action. The Europa League champions will be hoping he can show his true quality in La Liga.

Speaking after his unveiling, the 27-year-old said that he had spoken to former Manchester City team-mate Samir Nasri, who is currently on loan at Sevilla, about joining Jorge Sampaoli’s side.

“Samir Nasri told me that Sevilla was a good club,” Jovetic told a press conference. “I chose Sevilla because they play in the Champions League and they are fighting at the top of La Liga.”

Los Rojiblancos have the option to make the deal permanent at the end of the campaign.
