At one point, Rafa Mir looked set to join Atletico Madrid from Wolves during the summer.
When that move did not materialise, Mir returned to train with Wolves for a brief period.
Now, in an interview with Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Mir has spoken out about his decision to leave Molineux.
“It was all very fast. We had had conversations with the coach and with Monchi and super excited to come to a club like Sevilla,” he said.
“The next day everything was arranged and I was able to travel, in the morning I woke up singing ‘Seville has a special color’!
“I was clear about the step I wanted to take and after feeling the love and desire of the club it was easy to decide.”
It always looked unlikely that Mir would stay at Molineux, when he was going into the final year of his contract and Wolves could get good money for a player who would only be a backup option to Raul Jimenez.
It was always clear his heart was set on a return to Spanish football and that is what his comments reflect.
There cannot be too many Wolves fans who begrudge him that, and the move worked for all parties.
