Stankevicius joins Sevilla on loan from Sampdoria

January 7, 2010

Sevilla have completed the loan signing of Lithuania international Marius Stankevicius from Sampdoria.

The 28-year-old right-back arrived in Seville this morning and this evening put pen to paper on a contract that will see him join the Primera Division club on loan for the remainder of the season, with an option to buy.

Stankevicius, who will be presented on Friday, will help Sevilla cover the loss of full-back Sergio Sanchez, who has been told to stop playing for the time being due to a heart condition.
