Liverpool flop Iago Aspas is returning to La Liga after a season-long loan move to Sevilla was agreed between the two clubs, with there also being an option for the Spanish club to sign him on a permanent basis.
The Independent reports how the 26-year-old forward arrived at Anfield at the beginning of last season for £7.2 million but managed no goals in 14 lacklustre league performances, resulting in him heading back to Spain after just one season in the Premier League.
The Spanish striker's only competitive goal came in a 2-0 victory over Oldham in the FA Cup, but he has started just six matches in the last year, and Liverpool will hope that sending him on loan will help him rekindle the form which saw them sign him in the first place.
Aspas' previous spell in Spain was at Celta Vigo - where he came through the youth ranks - where he scored 46 goals in 136 appearances.
The loan switch was agreed by Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre, who travelled to Spain to conduct negotiations with Sevilla.
It is believed that the Spanish club submitted a bid of £5 million for the striker last week, but Liverpool are refusing to sell unless they recoup the money they spent.
This deal could also be used as a pathway for a potential deal for Sevilla left-back Alberto Moreno, whom Brendan Rodgers is very keen on signing to put an end to his left-back problems.
