Swansea City midfielder Roque Mesa has joined La Liga side Sevilla for an undisclosed fee.

The Spaniard departs the Liberty having made 16 appearances in all competitions for the Swans since joining the club in July last year from Las Palmas.

The 29-year-old found game-time hard to come by in his transition to life in the Premier League, with Mesa heading out on loan to Sevilla in January.

He managed seven appearances for Sevilla as he helped them finish seventh in La Liga, which has earned them Europa League qualification.

Everyone at Swansea City would like to thank Roque for his services and wish him well for the future.

Meanwhile, winger Kenji Gorre has joined Portuguese club Nacional after his Swans contract expired this summer.

Gorre made one Premier League appearance for the Swans, coming on as a late substitute in the final-day defeat at Crystal Palace during the 2014-15 season.

He also spent time on loan at Northampton Town and Dutch club Den Haag, while he helped Swans U23s win the Premier League 2 Division 2 title and Premier League Cup in 2016-17.
