Sevilla finalise Rog loan from Napoli

Following reports earlier in January that a deal had been agreed, Marko Rog has belatedly left Napoli for Sevilla on loan.

Sevilla have confirmed the signing of Napoli midfielder Marko Rog on loan until the end of the season.

The Croatia midfielder joined Napoli from Dinamo Zagreb in a reported €13million deal in August 2016, but he has struggled to break into the first team at the Stadio San Paolo.

Rog will hope for more opportunities at Sevilla, having started just six Serie A games in two-and-a-half years, although the clubs confirmed there is no option to buy at the end of this five-month loan deal.

The move was initially reported earlier in January, with Napoli director Cristiano Giuntoli said to have told ABC of an agreement that would see Rog return to Naples at the end of the campaign.

Napoli disputed the "false" quotes at the time, though, and suggested Giuntoli would take legal action against the Spanish outlet.
