Eduardo Berizzo has a new option at left-back after Sevilla completed the signing of Lionel Carole from Galatasaray.
The deal initially consists of a loan switch but Los Nervionenses hold a purchase option worth 4 million euros on the Frenchman, who passed through Nantes, Benfica and Troyes on his way to the Turkish giants.
"The opportunity that Sevilla is giving me to wear this shirt is very important," said the 26-year-old to the club's official media. "I will give my best to show all my qualities.
"It's the biggest opportunity I've had in my career. Galatasaray is a great club, but Sevilla is something else. I am very happy to come here, it is a great opportunity."
Carole arrives to add competition to Sergio Escudero's defensive slot, and he added that the Spaniard is: "A great player who I hope I will learn a lot from."
