Madrid: The list of big names swapping La Liga in Spain for the English Premier League continues as Jesus Navas looks set to become Manchester City's first major signing of the close season, with Manuel Pellegrini expected to follow suit as the club's new manager.

Sevilla confirmed on Monday night that they had accepted a bid for the player from City that is believed to be in the region of 20 million euros ($26 million, £17 million).

The deal, though, could eventually be worth up to 25 million euros to the Spanish club, depending on Navas achieving certain objectives.
