Real Betis sign Jesé Rodríguez from PSG

Real Betis sign Jesé Rodríguez from PSG

Quique Setien needed another striker after Antonio Sanabria left and Jesé Rodríguez is the man to fill that role at the Sevillian club.

Spanish forward Jese Rodriguez has joined La Liga side Real Betis on loan from Paris St Germain for the rest of the season, the French side said on Tuesday.

Rodriguez, 25, came through the Real Madrid academy before joining the French champions in a deal reported to be worth 25 million euros ($28.57 million) in 2016, however injuries and inconsistent form have blighted his time in the French capital. His signing was unveiled with a musical number.

He has scored one goal in nine Ligue 1 outings and has found himself out of favour with new coach Thomas Tuchel.

Rodriguez, who spent last season on loan at relegated Premier League side Stoke City, has featured just once this term -- as a last-minute substitute in last week’s 2-0 French Cup victory over Strasbourg.
