Luuk de Jong has signed for Sevilla after the La Liga club agreed a deal with PSV Eindhoven.

De Jong scored 28 goals in 34 Eredivisie appearances last season as PSV fell short of defending its league title. The Netherlands forward had thrived in Eindhoven after underwhelming spells at Borussia Monchengladbach and Newcastle United.

And De Jong's form has led to another move away from his home nation, the 28-year-old signing a four-year contract with Sevilla, which finished sixth in La Liga last term and has paid PSV a reported EUR 12.5 million.

De Jong won three Eredivisie titles during his time at PSV, which is also likely to lose Hirving Lozano this off-season. The Mexico forward has been heavily linked with Serie A club Napoli, after scoring 21 goals in all competitions in 2018-19.

 

Sevilla, meanwhile, has sold Quincy Promes and Luis Muriel, with winger Pablo Sarabia reportedly set to join Paris Saint-Germain, while Wissam Ben Yedder has been linked with a move to Manchester United.
