According to reports from Spain, Rodrigo Moreno is close to completing a deal to join Sevilla.
The 32-year old just lifted the UEFA Nations League trophy with Spain this weekend, despite missing the final through injury. Partidazo de COPE report that the Spaniard is close to sealing a return to his home country with Sevilla.
It is reported that Rodrigo has a release clause of £3million due to Leeds’ relegation from the Premier League. The move would see the forward join the Europa League winners ahead of next season.

Leed’s top scorer in the league last season is reportedly the highest earner at the club with a reported £100,000-a-week wages. Rodrigo netted 13 times in the Premier League last season; the club would miss his experience and ability upfront as they hope to bounce back from the Championship with their first attempt.
