Sevilla have completed the signing of Manchester United forward Anthony Martial on loan for the remainder of the season.

The 26-year-old arrived in Seville on Tuesday afternoon and underwent his medical before signing his contract, which will be in place until June.

The Andalusian club have confirmed the signing on Twitter

Sevilla have not had to pay a fee to bring Martial to the Estadio Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan, but they will contribute towards part of his wages.

Martial will meet up with his new Sevilla teammates for the first time on Thursday, which is when the squad are supposed to return to training after a few days off.

Martial requested to leave Old Trafford earlier this month amid concerns over his lack of game time, and after lengthy negotiations over the finances involved, United finally agreed to send him to Seville on Monday.

Martial has joined Sevilla with the hope of catapulting himself into contention to be in the France squad at the 2022 World Cup, with centre-back Jules Kounde also having the same goal, although he is already a regular in Didier Deschamps’ squad.

Julen Lopetegui will be able to use Martial as a left winger or as a sole striker, and his arrival means that he is the second player to join Sevilla this January, following Corona’s arrival from Porto.
