Monchi has rejoined Sevilla, ending speculation that he could take the role of technical director at Arsenal.

He has agreed a new contract as sporting director - the role he left two years ago to take up a similar position at Roma.

Monchi spent 29 years at Sevilla, as goalkeeper and then in management, before leaving in March 2017.

But he left his role at Roma earlier this month after the sacking of Eusebio Di Francesco and his backroom staff, leading to rumours that he could move to Arsenal to replace Sven Mslintat, the former head of recruitment.

Reports are now linking Arsenal with Marc Overmars, their former winger who now serves as the technical director of Ajax.
