Villarreal have signed Barcelona midfielder Jonathan dos Santos.

Barca announced that the deal was worth two million euros (£1.6m) and contains a buy-back clause. The move will be completed once Dos Santos completes a medical.

The Mexican international made just 14 first-team appearances for Barca in five seasons and has called time on his career with the club to join his brother Giovani at Villarreal.

Earlier in the summer, the 24-year-old turned down the chance to move to Real Sociedad as part of the deal that saw goalkeeper Claudio Bravo join Barcelona.
