Real Madrid midfielder Oscar Rodríguez has joined Sevilla on a five-year contract, the clubs announced on Sunday.
Oscar went through Madrid’s youth system, but never appeared with the first team and has spent the last two years at Leganés, scoring 13 goals and giving six assists.
The Spaniard was one of Leganés’ key players last season, even as the club dropped from the top flight.
He has built a particularly strong reputation as a free-throw shooter, after scoring four goals last season in 16 attempts.
Sevilla have paid Madrid around 15 million euros ($ 17.9 million) to sign Oscar, according to Spanish press reports.
“The 22-year-old signs with the club for the next five seasons,” read a statement from Sevilla, adding that he has “a powerful shot and an excellent set piece.”
