Sevilla have announced they've accepted a bid from Manchester City for Jesus Navas. City had hoped to take advantage of Sevilla's financial woes to pay only half of the player's £25.5million buy-out clause.

However, with Real Madrid also showing strong interest, the Spanish side held out, so City will pay an initial £20.4m, with a further £2.5m to follow in add-ons, for the pacy, right-sided midfielder.

Personal terms were agreed with the 27-year-old last Thursday and a statement on Sevilla's website this morning read: "Sevilla FC has accepted the English club's offer, taking into account the wishes of the player, who will have to pass a medical."
