Sevilla have announced agreements for the transfers of Barcelona forward Munir El Haddadi and Ajax defender Maximilian Wober.

The Catalan giants' La Liga rivals have now confirmed via their official club website that the 23-year-old has signed a contract with them, with a fee for the winger reported to be in the region of €1m.

"It seems Munir has taken a decision and, evidently, the club have also made a decision", Valverde said in a news conference on Wednesday.

Morata has scored nine goals in 24 appearances so far this season but has struggled for regular game time under Maurizio Sarri.

After her initial tweet, Ms Qunun posted almost non-stop for five hours, saying she had been abused and threatened by her family. But on Tuesday, the Thai immigration office released a video clip of its officials meeting Saudi diplomats to discuss the case.

Sevilla added Munir for a cut-race price of just over $1 million from Barcelona. He has won one global cap for Spain, in September 2014.

However, Morata's final destination has somewhat of a cloudy look to it, but according to Spanish outlet SPORT, Barcelona are the latest club to enquire about the 26-year-old's services.

The player touted to fill that requirement, Sports.es understands, is Chelsea and former Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.

After confirming his departure, Barcelona said: "The club would like to thank Munir El Haddadi for his dedication and commitment and wishes him all the best for the future".
