YASSINE BOUNOU ARRIVES ON LOAN FROM GIRONA FC

The goalkeeper, born in Canada but who plays for Morocco, arrives on loan with an option to buy

Sevilla FC and Girona FC have reached an agreement for a loan deal, with an option to buy, for goalkeeper Yassine Bounou (born in Montreal, Canada, 1991). The Moroccan international goalkeeper started his career in the youth system at Wydad AC in Casablanca, and signed for Atlético de Madrid when he was 21 years old, to play in their reserve team. After two seasons of regularly playing in the reserve team for Atlético, he was loaned to Real Zaragoza (at that time in the Second Division) in the 2014/15 season. During his first season with Zaragoza, he played 19 games and renewed his contract with them for an additional season.

During the 2016/17 season, he left Atlético de Madrid and signed for Girona FC. Here, he played in 21 league games and was promoted to LaLiga Santander. This gave him the chance to play in the first division , in which he ended up becoming the 'number 1' and played 30 league games and 1 in the Copa del Rey. Last season he was once again the 'number 1' for Girona and played 32 games in LaLiga, keeping 9 clean sheets. Despite this, he couldn't prevent his team from being relegated. 

Bono, as he is now known in the world of football, comes to Sevilla - who will be his fourth Spanish club. With his national team, he was called up for the first time in 2012, for a friendly against Togo. His official debut came three years later against Guinea. He was included in the Moroccan 23 man squad for the 2018 World Cup, but he didn't feature in any games. Since then, he has been the number 1 'keeper for his country including during the African Cup of Nations this summer, in which Morocco were eliminated in the round of 16. Currently, he has made 16 international appearances.
