OFFICIAL: Sevilla seal Sirigu loan signing

Sevilla have completed the signing of Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu on a one-year loan deal.

Jorge Sampaoli's side have loaned the Italian in an agreement that both clubs stressed does not include an option to buy as they confirmed the news on Friday.

Sirigu joined PSG from Palermo in July 2011 and helped the club to win four Ligue 1 titles, two Coupe de France crowns and the Coupe de la Ligue on three occasions.

The shot stopper has played 190 matches for PSG, but only three of those appearances came in Ligue 1 last season after he lost his place to Kevin Trapp following the latter's arrival from Eintracht Frankfurt.

Sirigu, 29, will have to battle Sergio Rico for the starting spot at Sevilla after becoming their 10th signing for the 2016-17 campaign.
