Influential midfielder Adriano Correia has signed a four-year deal to stay at Sevilla.

The young Brazilian was key to the team's Uefa Cup success last season, and Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan officials have been anxious to tie him down at the club.

At the same time as signing his new Liga deal, the 21-year-old learnt that Dunga had called him up to the national team for the October friendlies with Kuwait and Ecuador.

His new contract lasts until June 2012, and he insists that he could not be more happy with life at the moment.

"Everything has been tied up and I don't want anything to change," Adriano enthused.

"It's hard to believe how much success I have had from Sevilla to Brazil.

"My secret is to work hard and to win the confidence of the coach, and then maintain those standards."

Sevilla have meanwhile been boosted by the news that striker Fredi Kanoute's (pictured) injury is not as serious as first thought.

The Mali international suffered damage to his right knee in the 2-1 defeat at Atletico Madrid on Saturday.

But fears of serious ligament damage have been allayed as it has emerged the African only has a strain.

He looks set to miss the club's next two matches, but could be fit to return after the international break for the tough trip to Barcelona on October 15.
