Italy forward Ciro Immobile joins Spanish side Sevilla on 1-year loan from Borussia Dortmund


DORTMUND, Germany — Italy forward is joining Spanish side Sevilla on loan from Borussia Dortmund.

Dortmund says the transfer is agreed "in principle" and the 25-year-old will join Sevilla upon completion of a medical "initially on loan" through June 2016.

Immobile joined Dortmund from Torino for 18.5 million euros (then $25 million) in June 2014 but struggled to compensate for 's departure to Bayern Munich. He managed just three goals in 24 Bundesliga games, having finished the season before as Serie A's top-scorer with 22 goals.

Kicker reports Sevilla is paying 3 million euros ($3.3 million) for the one-year loan and that Immobile is unlikely to return to Dortmund once it's over.

The Spanish side was reportedly unwilling to meet Dortmund's 15 million euro (‚¬16.7 million) asking price for a full transfer.
