Sevilla have signed Quincy Promes from Spartak Moscow for a reported €20million, the Netherlands international agreeing a five-year deal.
The 26-year-old scored a brace in Spartak's home win against Sevilla in last season's Champions League.
Promes helped fire Spartak to the Russian Premier League title in 2016-2017 and scored at least 12 league goals in each of his four full seasons at the club.
The versatile attacker has been included in the Netherlands squad for their Nations League opener on September 9 against World Cup winners France.
And Promes could be handed an immediate chance to make himself a Sevilla hero as his club head to Real Betis for a derby clash on Sunday.
I’m leaving the amazing @fcsm_official family as a player for now, but I’ll always be part of it. Thank you for all the beautiful moments that we created together, we achieved things that I’ll never forget. It’s time for a new chapter in my journey. We’ll meet again! #QP 🎭 pic.twitter.com/pVKqoOxiYd— Quincy Promes (@QPromes) August 31, 2018
Sevilla's signing of Promes helps to cushion the blow of missing out on Lyon striker Mariano Diaz, who instead opted to rejoin Real Madrid.
Club president Jose Castro indicated Mariano had agreed to move to Sevilla before LaLiga giants Madrid moved in on the deal.
