Goalkeeper Sergio Rico has committed his future to Sevilla until 2021 after agreeing a two-year extension to his existing deal.

The 23-year-old, a product of Los Rojiblancos' youth system, is highly rated and was linked with Liverpool as recently as last month.

But, having last penned fresh terms in January 2016, has now made his long-term plans clear by signing up to the La-Liga club for the next four years.

Rico has won two Europa League titles with Sevilla and earned his first Spain cap last June.

Marca reports that Rico's new contract includes a rise in his release clause from €30million to €40m.
