Federico Fazio is set to move from Tottenham to Sevilla.

 

Tottenham Hotspur defender Federico Fazio is expected to seal a switch to former side Sevilla.

Spanish newspaper Estadio Deportivo published pictures of him arriving at San Pablo airport last night in time to complete his deadline day move.

Fazio joined Spurs in the summer of 2014 after winning the Europa League with Sevilla, but failed to make a positive impact at White Hart Lane.

An early red card against Manchester City was an inauspicious start, but he was given plenty of chances last season to impress.

In the summer Mauricio Pochettino gave a big indication Fazio was not in his plans by signing Toby Alderweireld and Kevin Wimmer.

The Argentine has not started a single Premier League game this season, and is evidently considered surplus to requirements despite Jan Vertonghen suffering a MCL injury.

The Times report the deal with Sevilla is a loan with an option to buy.

SkySports reported originally back in December that Sevilla were working on a deal to bring Fazio back, and it appears they have got their man.
