Seville – Sevilla left-back Sergio Escudero was rewarded for his fine form this season with a new four-year contract, the Spanish club confirmed on Thursday.
“Sevilla and Sergio Escudero have reached an agreement that will keep the left-sided defender with the club from Nervion (Getafe) until June 30, 2021”, Sevilla said in a statement.
Escudero joined Sevilla from Getafe at the start of last season and helped the Andalusians to their third straight Europa League title in May.
The 27-year-old also set up Sevilla’s opener in a 2-1 Champions League last 16, first leg win over English champions Leicester City on Wednesday.
Escudero was called into the Spain squad for the first time by Julien Lopetegui in November, but is yet to make his debut for the national team.
