Samir Nasri has become the third Manchester City player to find a new club on deadline day after agreeing to join Sevilla on a season-long loan.

The former Arsenal winger follows Wilfried Bony and Joe Hart out of the Etihad exit door after learning game time would be restricted under new manager Pep Guardiola.

Nasri, who has a contract with City until 2019, will play in La Liga and the Champions League for Europa League holders Sevilla.

The 29-year-old, who has scored 26 goals in 171 games for City since joining in a £25m move from Arsenal five years ago, was left out of the club's Champions League squad by manager Pep Guardiola.

Earlier in the day England keeper Hart's loan to Torino was confirmed and Ivorian striker Bony secured a season-long switch to Stoke City.

Nasri was banished from first-team training by Guardiola for being overweight.
