Anthony Martial has completed a loan move to Sevilla from Manchester United.
The Frenchman completed the loan deal late on Tuesday, January 25, and it is understood there is no option for Sevilla to buy him at the end of the season.
Martial has been a target for Sevilla in recent months and the two clubs have been having a hard time coming to an agreement for the 26-year old.
Bbc reports that Sevilla will cover Martial’s full wages, although reports also suggest he took a pay cut to move to Spain for the remainder of the season.
Taking to their social media, Sevilla highlighted some delightful photos of the Frenchman in the club’s colours for the first time, describing Martial as "a luxury reinforcement".
Martial joined Manchester United from Monaco in 2015 as a promising youngster for £36m.
When Ralf Rangnick arrived on interim basis, Martial made it clear to the new gaffer that he wanted a change in scenery, amid an influx in the forward positions at Manchester United.
He has made 11 appearances for United so far this season, mostly from the bench, and scored just once.
At Sevilla, Martial will be crucial for the Los Nervionenses, who are currently second in La Liga, four points behind Real Madrid with 16 games of the season to go.
