Spanish international Nolito has joined Manchester City.

The 29-year-old has signed a four-year contract with Pep Guardiola's side after spending three years at Celta Vigo scoring 39 goals. He is City's second major signing of the summer.

Nolito starred in Spain's run to the Second Round at Euro 2016. He scored in the 3-0 win over Turkey and started all four of the team's games.

"I’ll try to bring as much as I possibly can," he told Manchester City's website. "I’ll do everything that the manager asks of me, try my absolute best and do everything I can to try to repeat the form I’ve shown throughout my career at various clubs."

"It’s just about trying to play my normal game and let’s hope that I can help Manchester City to win games."

"I think that Pep Guardiola is one of the best managers in the world. He knows a lot about the game and he’s going to help me progress as a player and I’m sure he’ll get the best out of me."

He becomes Manchester City's new number nine. The last player to wear that jersey was fellow Spanish striker Alvaro Negredo.
