Sergio Ramos will leave Sevilla following a brief one-season comeback with his boyhood club.

The former Spain captain, 38, returned to Sevilla in September 18 years after he left to join Real Madrid.

But following 37 appearances and seven goals, Ramos, who made the switch after leaving Paris St Germain last summer, is not renewing his contract.

Sevilla finished 14th in LaLiga last season and failed to make it out of the group stages of the Champions League.

A statement from the club read: “Sergio Ramos has informed Sevilla FC that he will not continue next season after having fulfilled his dream of returning to the club where he trained as a player and achieved full international status.

“Sevilla FC would like to thank Sergio Ramos for the commitment, leadership and maximum dedication that he has shown in this campaign, wishing him the best of luck in his next professional challenge.”

Sevilla said Ramos, who won the World Cup in 2010 and European Championship in 2008 and 2012 for Spain, will stage a press conference alongside the club’s president Jose Maria del Nido Carrasco on Tuesday.
