Sevilla president Jose Castro has confirmed that he is working in the process of facilitating the return of Tottenham Hotspur defender Federico Fazio to the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán in January.
Fazio joined Tottenham Hotspur from Sevilla at the start of last season and a lot was expected from the Argentine international at White Hart Lane.
However, Fazio has failed to impress and is now clearly down the pecking order under manager Mauricio Pochettino, as evidenced by the fact that he has been limited to only one League Cup appearance so far this season.
As a result, it is widely expected that Fazio will be leaving Tottenham during the January transfer window and it has now been confirmed that the 28-year old could well make a move back to Sevilla.
Sevilla President Jose Castro stated that he is looking at the possibility of signing Fazio in January and added that he is ready to bury the hatchet with the defender in order to facilitate the potential move.
Speaking to Radio Sevilla, Castro said, “We are working on a number of options and Fazio is one of them. He is an option, but nothing has been completed as of yet. It is clear that Fazio did not leave Sevilla in the best of ways and that really upset me, but I have to think about Sevilla’s interests.
“I have to swallow my anger, because this club needs Fazio. I do not like swallowing my pride, but I am willing to do something I do not like because it is in Sevilla’s best interest.”
