Spain striker Fernando Llorente has finalised his move to Sevilla from Juventus, the Primera Division club have announced.
The Europa League winners confirmed on their website on Thursday that the 30-year-old had passed his medical and signed a three-year contract.
Llorente became a free agent after an agreement was reached with the Italian champions to terminate his contract, which had two years left to run.
The move completes his return to La Liga just two years after leaving Athletic Bilbao to join Juve.
Late on Wednesday evening, the player tweeted: "It has been a great pleasure to live the last two years with Juventus. Thanks a lot for all the support."
Llorente, who will wear the No 24 shirt, will be presented to the media at 7.30pm local time on Friday and will then head out onto the pitch at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan to be greeted by the club's fans.
The Spain international scored 11 goals in 30 league starts for Juve last season to help the Turin giants win the domestic double - Serie A and Coppa Italia - as well as finish runners-up to Barcelona in the Champions League.
Llorente opted to leave after the Bianconeri strengthened their attack this summer with the arrival of Mario Mandzukic, Paulo Dybala and Simone Zaza.
Sevilla were known to be keen to strengthen their front line after selling Carlos Bacca, their top scorer in the past two seasons, to AC Milan last month.
