Steven N’Zonzi’s recent trip to London was for personal reasons and not to negotiate a move back to the Premier League, according to Sevilla chairman Jose Castro.
The former Stoke and Blackburn player has been a revelation since departing England for Spain in 2015, where he made 46 appearances for Sevilla last season.
Steven N’Zonzi, who in January signed a new contract which keeps him at the La Liga club until 2020, has not featured for Sevilla since their 3-3 draw with Liverpool last month amid reports of a disagreement with backroom staff.
“His situation is due to a technical issue with the coaches and as with all the technical issues, he can change it,” Castro said.
“He has travelled to London to visit his son with our permission.”
‘There aren’t any offers to sign N’Zonzi. I can’t talk about clauses or prices if we don’t have an offer.
‘We respect the decision of our coaches, he is training with their mates but currently he isn’t playing.’
