Nolito returns to Celta Vigo to take place of injured goalkeeper. The forward will be available for the game against Alaves this weekend.
Celta Vigo have confirmed the return of Nolito, who rejoins the club from Sevilla and will help them in their fight to stay up in La Liga this season.
Nolito left Celta for Manchester City, with Barcelona also interested at the time, before moving back to Spain to sign for Sevilla in 2017.
He has already passed a medical in Vigo. And he will now start training with Oscar Garcia’s side ahead of their game against Deportivo Alaves at Balaidos this weekend.
The long-term injury sustained by the goalkeeper Sergio Alvarez allowed Celta to de-register him and make an emergency signing. That is similarly to Barcelona’s case with Ousmane Dembele and Martin Braithwaite.
Sevilla were happy to let Nolito leave due to the forward’s contract up at the end of the month anyway.
