Sevilla have confirmed experienced striker Frederic Kanoute will be staying with the Primera Liga club next season.

There had been speculation that the 33-year-old Mali forward may leave this summer after six years at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

However, Sevilla announced on Saturday that Kanoute, after being given some time to consider his future since the end of the season, has now committed himself to the club.

"Kanoute will continue at Sevilla," stated the club.

"The striker, in a meeting with sporting director Monchi, has expressed his desire to continue at Sevilla, forming part of the project and fighting for the exciting objectives of next season."

Sevilla, who recently installed Marcelino Garcia Toral as their new coach following the departure of Gregorio Manzano, finished fifth last season to secure themselves a Europa League berth.
