David Villa has welcomed Barcelona's £125 million shirt deal.

Barca have just announced a big-money shirt sponsorship deal for next season with the Qatar Foundation.

The agreement, said to be for around 165million euros over five campaigns, will see the club use a shirt sponsor for the first time, and will complement the club's alliance with Unicef.

The deal has drawn criticism from former Barca president Joan Gaspart, but Villa believes it will be beneficial to the club.

"What's good for the club is good for us as well," he said.
