Japan midfielder Hiroshi Kiyotake is on the verge of a move to Spanish side Sevilla from relegated Bunsdesliga side Hannover, German sports magazine Kicker reported Thursday.

Sevilla will pay Hannover €6.5 million (about ¥793 million) for Kiyotake and hand the 26-year-old a four-year contract through the summer of 2020, said the report, which quoted managing director Martin Bader as saying the deal “is already being formalized.”
