Malaga have completed the signing of Spain international Santi Cazorla for an undisclosed fee from Villarreal.
The Andalusian outfit brokered a deal with the Yellow Submarine on Tuesday and now the 26-year-old has passed his medical and penned a five-year contract.
The midfielder, who will be presented by his new club on August 1, now has a €45million (£39.5m) release clause in his new long-term contract.
No fee has been announced but reports in Spain suggest Malaga will pay around €20m (£17.5m), which would be a club record.
Cazorla becomes the 10th new arrival at La Rosaleda this summer, following the likes of Ruud van Nistelrooy, Joaquin and Jeremy Toulalan, and he will link up with his new team-mates on their current tour to Holland.
The Spaniard, who has 34 international caps, was part of the Spain squad that won Euro 2008, although he missed out on World Cup glory two years later after a season spent battling injury.
