Portuguese striker Andre Silva joined Sevilla on a season-long loan on Saturday after spending just one season at AC Milan. Sevilla announced the deal on their website, adding that they have an option to make Silva’s move a permanent arrangement. The 22-year-old Silva moved to Milan last summer from Porto where he had scored 24 goals in 58 games. But he was unable to repeat that form in Serie A, scoring only 10 goals in 40 matches. Silva’s chances of enjoying first-team football this season appeared limited after the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus. The Portuguese international becomes the seventh signing for Sevilla, in what has been a busy acquisition period for the club.
