DONE DEAL: Whoops! Tebas lets slip Takashi Inui on way to Real Betis

Real Betis have a deal in place for Eibar winger Takashi Inui, according to LaLiga president Javier Tebas.

He let the move slip when asked about the recent arrival of Saudi players to Spanish soil in an interview with eldebatedehoy.es.

"We have to try and get clubs like Eibar, Levante, and Leganés to have players who are reference points in some countries," Tebas said. "At Eibar they have Inui, who will go to Betis next year, by the way.

"Eibar are the third most-watched team in Japan. They can't sign big stars to make the whole world watch them, they can't sign a Bale.

"What these teams can do is bring a good player from Japan, Saudi Arabia, or Korea, who can be a 'driver' in those countries."
