Manchester United have missed out on the signing of Quincy Promes after the player signed for Sevilla.

The Dutch winger has joined the Spanish LaLiga side from Russian club Spartak Moscow just before the close of the European transfer deadline on Friday night.

The Netherlands international was wanted by both AC Milan and Manchester United in the summer but the Spanish club have swooped to seal a deal.

A statement on Sevilla’s website said, according to BristolPost: “Sevilla FC and FC Spartak Moscow have reached an agreement for the transfer of Quincy Anton Promes to the Nervionenses for the next five seasons. Promes, a Dutch international winger aged 26, was developed in the youth ranks of AFC Ajax and joined FC Twente in 2009.”

Promes will be seen as a direct replacement for former Sevilla winger Joaquin Correa who left the club and move to Italy this summer.

The Argentina international signed for Lazio during early days of the summer transfer window, making a return back to Italy where he played for Sampdoria before joining Sevilla in 2016. Promes could make his debut for Sevilla when they face city rivals Real Betis in the Andalusia derby this weekend.
