Former Reading goalkeeper Orjan Nyland has signed for Champions League outfit Sevilla.

The 32-year-old has signed for the Spanish giants after his year-long spell at RB Leipzig came to an end after just two appearances.

The Norway international has predominantly been a backup at most of his clubs and spent half a season on loan with the Royals during the 2021/22 campaign.

Making 10 appearances under Paul Ince, he did not return to Berkshire on a permanent switch and moved to Leipzig after his contract at AFC Bournemouth had expired.

Sevilla beat Roma in last season's Europa League final to secure safe passage into the group stages of the Champions League despite a 12th-place La Liga finish.

They finished third in their Champions League group last season, dropping into the Europa League for the knockout stages.

Seven-time winners of UEFA's secondary competition, they lost their opening league match of the season at home to Valencia.

Upon signing, the former Aston Villa keeper said: "I know it's a very big club that have done very well in Europe the last couple of years. They've won the Europa League and got a couple of trophies in recent years which states just how big the club is, so it's an honour for me to be here and be a part of the team. I'll do my best to keep on getting the trophies in and win as many games as possible for this great club to maintain the history of the club and like I've said before, I can't wait to get started."
