It’s a relief for Yassine Bounou who will not play in second division this season. Coming from FC Girona, the Moroccan goalkeeper has signed with Sevilla FC in the form of a loan with a call option.
The Lion of Atlas arrived Monday, September 02, at San Pablo airport, where he was greeted by a delegation of the club. The latter should spend his medical examination in the coming hours. Bounou will play alongside Moroccan-Spanish Munir El Haddadi, who signed a four-and-a-half-season deal during the winter transfer window.
Bounou becomes the new goalkeeper of the Andalusian team after the departure of Sergio Rico to Paris Saint-Germain, officialized by the club of the French capital, Sunday, September 1.
The Moroccan international has a good experience in Liga where he has played 62 games. A native of Montreal, Canada, the former Atlético of Madrid joined FC Girona in the summer of 2016. The Moroccan made the most stops in La Liga this season, with 125 parries.
Relegated to the second division of La Liga with his club, the 28-year-old goalkeeper had already expressed his desire to go elsewhere, very little motivation to play in lower division.
