Barcelona managed to sign Luuk de Jong on loan from Sevilla just before the transfer deadline on Tuesday to compensate for the loss of Antoine Griezmann.

The Dutch striker has not necessarily arrived to be a regular at Camp Nou, but to offer a different option in attack, provide experience and, if possible, score goals when needed.

Diario de Sevilla have explained some details of the operation, revealing that as well as paying De Jong's wages, Barça will also pay a third of the amortization of his transfer fee.

De Jong joined Sevilla for 12.5 million euros on a four-year contract, which is broken down to around 3 million euros per year, with Barça set to pay 1 million of that this season.

Remember that the deal also includes an option for Barça to sign De Jong at the end of the season if they are satisfied with his performances.

At 31, the forward has the chance to experience something new in his career with the objective of proving that he can live up to the expectations at a club like Barcelona.
