Konoplyanka joins Sevilla from Dnipro

Sevilla have confirmed they have completed the free transfer of Yevhen Konoplyanka from Dnipro, whom they defeated in May’s Europa League final.

The 25-year-old passed a medical with the European victors last week but was forced to wait for the Ukraine club to ratify his transfer before sealing his move to Spain as his contract did not run out until the end of July.

Dnipro have now authorised Konplyanka’s departure, allowing the winger to secure a four-year contract in Andalusia on Thursday which contains a buyout clause of €40 million.

Konoplyanka, who starred in Dnirpo’s surprise Europa League run, was formely a target of Premier League giants Liverpool, but a move failed to materialise in January of last year.

The Ukraine international is due to join his new team-mates for the beginning of their pre-season preparations in the coming days.

Konoplyanka joins Steven N’Zonzi in signing for Sevilla, with Unai Emery’s side confirming the midfielder’s arrival from Stoke City earlier on Thursday.
