Real Madrid youngster Sergio Reguilon has left Santiago Bernabeu to join Sevilla on a season-long loan, the La Liga clubs have confirmed.

Reguilon made his Los Blancos breakthrough last season, coming into the first team under Santiago Solari, who preferred the youngster over Marcelo.

The 22-year-old struggled for game time after Zinedine Zidane's return as head coach, however, making two La Liga appearances following Solari's departure.

Madrid spent big in June to bring in Ferland Mendy from Lyon for an initial €48million, a move that seemed likely to further limit Reguilon's chances of regular football next season.

And Sevilla has taken advantage, signing the full-back on loan for the 2019-20 campaign.

Reguilon will link up with former Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui in Seville and becomes the club's eighth signing of the transfer window.
