DONE DEAL: Santi Cazorla happy to make Al Sadd move

Former Arsenal and Villarreal star Santi Cazorla has joined Al Sadd.

Cazorla's contract at Spanish side Villarreal expired this summer and the midfielder completed a move to the country which will host the 2022 World Cup.

Speaking to the official Al-Sadd website, Cazorla said: "It's a great honour to be with the biggest club in Qatar. Xavi helped me a lot in my decision to come to Qatar.

"He was a role model for me when I was a player and he is sure to set an example for me as a coach.

"My goal is to win everything with Al-Sadd, you have to strive to win everything.

"I want to thank everyone for their encouragement and continued support to the team and I will strive to help the team every day to reap the victories."
