Spanish midfielder Nolito ended a disappointing two-year stay with Portuguese side Benfica on Monday as he signed a four year contract with Primera Liga outfit Celta Vigo.

The 26-year-old joined Benfica from Barcelona, where he had come through the youth system, in 2011 but played just 48 times scoring 12 goals.

He fell out of favour last season and was loaned out to Celta's rivals Granada where he played 17 times and scored three goals.

At Celta, he will again join up with newly-appointed coach Luis Enrique with whom he worked as a youngster at Barcelona.
