Newly-crowned European champions Barca have reached an agreement with Sevilla to sign winger Aleix Vidal.

The 25-year-old has been impressive for Sevilla - who retained the Europa League trophy this season. He joined Sevilla from Almeria just a year ago and last month earned his first call-up to the Spain squad.

Vidal has agreed a five-year contract with the La Liga champions and will undergo his medical on Monday, but he won't be able to play for his new club until January 2016 due to a ban imposed on the Catalan club by FIFA for breaching rules on signing international players under the age of 18.

A Barca statement read: "Barcelona and Sevilla have reached an agreement for the transfer of Aleix Vidal to the Azulgrana. The 25-year-old will sign for the next five seasons, until June 30 2020."
