Confirmed: Arsenal midfielder has left the Gunners, his new club has already made an announcement


Former Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has completed his move to former club Villarreal.

The Spanish club has already officially announced the return of the Spaniard.

They wrote on Twitter: "Today we have a very special thing to tell you because it is time to see someone very loved by the groguets... welcome back Santi Cazorla."

The 33-year-old played 180 games for the Gunners before suffering a number of serious injuries which kept him out of action for almost two months.

He announced his departure at the end of last month in an emotional statement to the club and fans.

"Hello to the Arsenal fans everywhere, I'm very sad to be leaving after so many great times," he said.

"I have loved my time with the club and I will always remember the special moments we have had together.

"The FA Cup win in 2014 is something we will never forget. It was a great moment for me and the club.

"I want to say thank you very much because you always give me a special support.

"I am very proud to be part of this club's history and I want to wish you all the best. And thank you very much again."
