​Sevilla have confirmed the signing of former Manchester City forward Stevan Jovetic on-loan from Inter for the remainder of the season, with an option to buy.


The Andalusian club tweeted pictures of the Montenegrin striker undergoing a medical, before being presented with the number 16 shirt, alongside manager Jorge Sampaoli.

Jovetic joins La Liga's second placed side after having had a varied career - most notably playing for Partizan Belgrade, Fiorentina and Inter, as well as winning 40 caps for his native Montenegro.


In another tweet from the club, the 27-year-old apparently cited former Manchester City teammate Samir Nasri, as one of the influences behind his decision to move to the south of Spain.

Inter also released a ​statement: “Stevan Jovetic has been loaned to Sevilla FC until June 30th 2017, where the Spanish side has an option to make the transfer permanent.” 


By reported estimates, the fee to make the deal a permanent one is set at around €14 million.


The forward is Sevilla second January signing following the capture of defender Clement Lenglet from French side AS Nancy.
