Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Span­ish in­ter­na­tional winger Je­sus Navas re­turned to Sevilla yes­ter­day, the La Liga club an­nounced on their web­site. Navas had been a free agent since being re­leased by Manch­ester City at the end of last sea­son. “Sevilla FC have reached an agree­ment with Je­sus Navas, with the player sign­ing a deal yes­ter­day keep­ing him at the club for the next four sea­sons,” Sevilla said in a state­ment. The 31-year-old moves back to Spain after four sea­sons with City, dur­ing which he won the 2013/14 Pre­mier League ti­tle and two English League Cups. Navas, who played 395 times for Sevilla after his first-team de­but in 2003, has 35 in­ter­na­tional caps but hasn’t played for Spain since being left out of the 2014 World Cup squad. “Navas comes home with the firm in­ten­tion of be­com­ing Sevilla FC’s all-time (record) ap­pear­ance holder,” the club added. Navas is only 19 short of the cur­rent record of 414 ap­pear­ances held by club leg­end Juan Arza. —AFP
