Sevilla's Czech Republic goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik confirmed he will leave the club when his contract expires next month.

Through a statement on social media, Vaclik cited a lack of playing time as the reason he would depart.

"It has been an incredible three years that I will never forget," he said.

"Although last season has been challenging for me, I'm leaving the club with the greatest respect and admiration.

"I'm convinced I can still play at the highest level, and I'm looking forward to new opportunities ahead."
