Sevilla FC have reached an agreement with Jesús Navas, with the player signing a deal on Tuesday keeping him at the club for the next four seasons. The winger, who has spent the last four campaigns playing for Manchester City, returns to the Nervión-based outfit, who he originally joined as a 15 year old. He will be presented on Wednesday in front of the media at 20:00, following which he will walk out onto the pitch of the Sánchez-Pizjuán at 20:30 to be presented in front of the fans.
Navas made his debut for the first team on the 23rd of November 2003 at Montjuic (former ground of RCD Espanyol) and took part in 393 official matches, in which he scored 34 goals over ten seasons. During this time, the Seville native lifted two UEFA Cups, one European Super Cup, two Copa del Rey trophies and one Supercopa de España. And as if that wasn't enough, he became a world champion at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and a European champion at Euro 2012, both while playing for Sevilla. In fact, Navas accumulated 35 appearances for the national side between 2009 and 2014, with three goals and only four defeats.
In the summer of 2013, he left the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán on excellent terms to join Manchester City at the age of 27. During his spell in England his progression continued, garnering 183 appearances -123 in the Premier League, 31 in the Champions League, 15 in the League Cup,13 in the FA Cup and one in the Community Shield- in which he scored 8 goals and created 39. To his winnings he added a Premier League and two League Cups.
Characterised by his fantastic consistency and enviable physical condition, Jesús Navas comes home with the firm intention of becoming Sevilla FC's all-time appearance holder.
