Serge Aurier joins Europa League champions

1 min read

Villarreal have announced the signing of Serge Aurier on a short-term deal.

The 28-year-old full-back has been unattached since his contract at Tottenham was terminated by mutual consent on transfer deadline day.

Ivorian international Aurier joins the Spanish club until the end of the season, with the option to extend the deal for a further two years.

He began his career at Lens and joined Paris Saint-Germain in 2014 β€” initially on loan β€” after impressing in Ligue Un with Toulouse.

In the French capital, Aurier won two league titles, three French Cups and three league cups.

The defender arrived in the Premier League in August 2017 β€” for a fee in the region of €25 million β€” and spent four years at Spurs.

Capped 70 times for his country, Aurier will be presented as a Villarreal player after this week’s World Cup qualifiers.

He is the third former Tottenham player now on the books at the Yellow Submarine, alongside Etienne Capoue and Justin Foyth.
