Sevilla have revealed that they "have reached an agreement in principle" for Eduardo Berizzo to become their new head coach.

Jorge Sampaoli led Sevilla to a fourth-place finish in La Liga last season, but he has since left to take charge of Argentina.

Berizzo, meanwhile, has spent the last three years with Celta Vigo, and led the club into the semi-finals of the Europa League last season, where they narrowly lost out to Manchester United.

Sevilla have revealed that Berizzo "will arrive in Seville in the next few days" to officially sign on the dotted line.

"Sevilla and Eduardo Berizzo have reached an agreement in principle for the Argentinian to be the new coach of the club for the next two seasons. Berizzo will arrive in Seville in the next few days to sign his contract and be officially presented as the new coach," read a statement on Sevilla's official website.

Berizzo, who was a centre-back during his playing career, has won 61 of his 148 official matches in charge of Celta.
