Loic Bade joins Sevilla on loan

Sevilla have wrapped up their first deal of the January transfer window with Rennes defender Loic Bade joining on a six month loan.

Bade will formally complete his switch to the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, when the window opens in the coming days, but his arrival is a positive step for Sevilla.

Jorge Sampaoli’s side find themselves battling a possible relegation dog fight in the coming weeks, and they were held by a 1-1 draw at Celta Vigo, on their post 2022 World Cup return.

Bade joined Rennes from fellow Ligue 1 side Lens in 2021, but after struggling to make an impact, he joined Premier League team Nottingham Forest on a season long loan at the start of 2022/23.

After failing to make a single Premier League appearance at the City Ground, head coach Steve Cooper requested to end the loan early, and he now moves to Sevilla for the remainder of the season.
