Danish international Michael Krohn-Dehli is leaving Celta Vigo, agent confirms

Danish international midfielder, Michael Krohn-Dehli, has opted not to extend his stay at Celta Vigo.

Celta Vigo had hoped they could agree a new deal with Michael Krohn-Dehli, but according to comments from Galician newspaper, Faro de Vigo, his agent has confirmed the Danish international will be leaving Balaidos.

Represented by former Dutch international, Rob Witschge, when asked about the central midfielder's future at Celta, he declared: "What I can say, is that it's 100% certain he'll be changing teams in the summer."

The current contract of Krohn-Dehli expires on 30th June, and whilst he has been a key player for Celta since arriving from Brondby in 2012, making over 100 appearances, he clearly sees his future elsewhere.

Various media outlets in England, such as The Star, had linked Krohn-Dehli with more than just passing interest from Tottenham, despite their apparent desire to move for younger players. A solid and experienced midfielder, the Dane celebrates 32nd birthday on 6th June.

In Spain, Villarreal have also been tipped to make a move, but it appears that both they and Tottenham, are likely to miss out. In Denmark, the online edition of the Copenhagen Post, believes Krohn-Dehli has already agreed a two-year deal with reigning Europa League champions, Sevilla.

Meanwhile, and practically of the opinion Krohn-Dehli moving to Sevilla is a foregone conclusion, Danish manager Morten Olsen commented: "It's more than deserved. It's a move he's earned, because he's been an important player with a good team such as Celta and for a good period of time, whilst also being an international during those years."

If indeed there was any serious interest from Tottenham, it appears they may have now missed their opportunity to sign Krohn-Dehli. However, there has not yet been any official confirmation from Sevilla, regarding whether the player has agreed terms.
