Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Serge Aurier has completed a free transfer to Villarreal.
The Ivory Coast international was a free agent after mutually terminating his deal with Spurs over the summer and was briefly linked with a shock move to North London rivals Arsenal.
Everton and Real Madrid were also tipped to move for Aurier, but the right-back has now linked up with the Europa League winners on a one-year deal with the option to extend until 2024.
Aurier will link up with fellow new signings Arnaut Danjuma, Boulaye Dia and Aissa Mandi at Villarreal, where he will also reunite with former Tottenham teammate Juan Foyth following his own permanent move.
The 28-year-old left Spurs after chalking up eight goals and 17 assists in 110 appearances over four seasons, and he is currently preparing for World Cup qualifiers against Malawi during the international break.
