Sevilla president Jose Castro says Steven N'Zonzi's future will be decided by new coach Vincenzo Montella.
Montella has recalled the midfielder to first team training after he was frozen out by predecessor Eduardo Berizzo.
But Castro said of the former Stoke City midfielder: "What we want is to have good players who allow the club to achieve its sporting goals.
"N'Zonzi had a difference with the previous coach. Now that we have hired a new coach, it's up to him to decide. But N'Zonzi is a player from Sevilla. He has been there since the beginning of the season. Our new coach is free to select him if he considers he deserves it."
