Iago Aspas was disappointing during his time at Liverpool.

As confirmed by Sevilla’s official website, Liverpool striker Iago Aspas will re-join La Liga outfit Celta Vigo when the transfer window opens on July 1.

The Spanish striker joined the Reds from Celta Vigo in the summer of 2013 in a deal worth £7 million, as per the BBC, but his time on Anfield was ultimately a frustrating one.

Aspas failed to settle on Merseyside as the demands of the pacey Premier League proved overwhelming, with the striker appearing just 14 times throughout the 2013/14 league campaign without finding the net.

As a result, boss Brendan Rodgers decided the best course of action was to loan him back to Spain with Sevilla in the hope that a solid campaign can help the Reds reclaim a portion of his initial transfer fee.

However, the last 12 months have arguably proved even tougher for Aspas as the 5ft 9inch striker was largely restricted to a place on the bench, appearing in only 10 La Liga matches.

The recently-crowned Europa League champions had the option to acquire Aspas on a long-term deal this summer, but it has now been announced that Sevilla have instead agreed a deal with Celta for his return to Vigo.

“The agreement is total between the two parties, with only the ensuing medical to take place before the official formalisation when the summer transfer window opens on July 1,” reads a statment on Sevilla's official website.

Despite his relatively limited league appearances last season, Aspas was selected frequently during Sevilla’s Copa del Rey campaign where he struck seven goals in five games.

Alongside Barcelona superstar Neymar, he topped the competition’s scoring charts and finished the season becoming a Europa League winner.
