Following Spain's exit from Euro 2016 at the last-16 stage, Celta Vigo star Nolito can now focus on resolving his club future.

And, according to reports in the Telegraph, the 29-year-old is set to become a Manchester City player "later this week".

Three-year deal at City

The UK newspaper has revealed that Nolito was due in Manchester for talks on Wednesday, with the forward expected to put pen to paper on a three-year contract at the Etihad Stadium.

The Telegraph says City have activated Nolito's release clause, valued at 18 million euros, as he prepares to become the club's second major signing ahead of the start of Pep Guardiola's reign as manager.

Nolito netted once for Spain at Euro 2016.

Gündogan signed earlier in June

The four-time English champions confirmed the capture of Germany international midfielder Ilkay Gündogan from Borussia Dortmund at the beginning of June.

The deal for Nolito would see the Premier League side secure the player's services ahead of Guardiola's former employers, Barcelona.
