Sevilla sign Cristoforo

12 August 2013 20:01

Sevilla have confirmed the signing of 19-year-old midfielder Sebastian Cristoforo from Penarol.

The Uruguayan featured prominently in his nation's run to the final of the recent Under-20 World Cup, in which they were beaten by France, and he has now been rewarded with a move to Europe.

And he has expressed delight at being handed a chance in La Liga by Sevilla head coach Unai Emery.

"I arrive at a great club like Sevilla and I think it is a great opportunity for me," he told the club's official website.

Cristoforo also insisted he is not arriving as a replacement for fellow midfield enforcer Gary Medel, who left to join Cardiff City earlier this month.

He added: "I did not come to cover a position or to replace another player. Medel is a very important player. I can only promise to give my best to help the team."

Cristoforo made 22 domestic appearances for Penarol last season as the Montevideo side secured their 49th Uruguayan Primera Division title.
