Sevilla signed Khalid Boulahrouz on a one-year loan deal from Chelsea on Friday.

The Netherlands defender made only six appearances for the Blues since January after having moved from German club Hamburg in August.

"I know Sevilla, the type of football the team plays, and for that it is an honor to come here, to choose Sevilla," Boulahrouz said Friday.

Boulahrouz was often injured at Chelsea and also overlooked by manager Jose Mourinho.

"The last six months I haven't played enough and I want to recover my game, so I'm bringing everything to Sevilla," he said.

Last season, Sevilla retained the UEFA Cup, won the Copa del Rey and finished third in the Spanish league.
