FOOTBALL- 7 January 2019 17:58 GMT
Leicester City has completed the deal for Vicente Iborra to return to LaLiga, with the former Sevilla midfielder joining Villarreal for a reported €11m.
The La Liga side are currently struggling with a point separating them from the relegation zone with Athletic Bilbao having a game in hand against them who are also embroiled in the relegation scrap.
Iborra on his move to the yellow submarine said: “It’s time to say goodbye,” he wrote on his official Twitter account. “It’s not easy for my family and me, but we feel that it’s time to come back home.
“Along the season-and-a-half, I’ve felt privileged for wearing this jersey and playing beside these great supporters. You made me feel [like] one of yours, thanks from my heart for your unconditional support.
“I don’t want to finish this letter without remembering The Boss [Srivaddhanaprabha]. We will never forget you. Thank you for everything you did for this club.”
