Sergio Ramos has returned to his boyhood club Sevilla after rejecting a big-money move to Saudi Arabia.

Ramos, 37, signed a one-year contract and has reportedly taken a major pay cut to return to Andalusia.

The former Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain defender had been a free agent since leaving the Ligue 1 champions in the summer.

Ramos looked set to complete a move to either Saudi Arabian side Al-Ittihad or Turkish club Besiktas, but Sevilla came in with a late offer for the defender to secure his return after 18 years away.

He came through the youth ranks at Sevilla and made his senior debut in February 2004 before completing his move to Real Madrid in 2005 where he went on to win five La Liga titles and four UEFA Champions League trophies.

At PSG he won two Ligue 1 titles and a Trophee des Champions to add to his list of honours.
