Celta Vigo have confirmed they have reached an agreement with Sevilla to sign former player Nolito.

The Spain international will return for his second stint at Balaidos and is expected to undergo a medical in the next 24 hours ahead of completing the deal. Nolito played for the Galician club from 2013 to 2016, scoring 39 goals in 100 appearances. 

The transfer has been allowed to take place due to the long-term absense of goalkeeper Sergio Álvarez through injury. The signing will come as a major boost for Celta as they continue to struggle at the foot of the table.
