Liverpool winger Antonio Nunez has signed a three-year deal with Celta Vigo.
The former Real Madrid wide man was deemed surplus to requirements by Rafa Benitez after a disappointing season at Anfield.
Nunez is now heading back to La Liga and Celta president Horacio Gomez was delighted with the acquisition.
"The operation with Liverpool for Antonio Nunez is closed," said Gomez.
"We just need to wait two days to receive all the documents from Liverpool. It is an excellent deal for us."
Vigo are still in the hunt for Manchester United midfielder Kleberson, but the talks with The Red Devils are making slow progress.
Gomez also revealed that they are stepping up their pursuit of Newcastle's Hugo Viana.
Celta face competition from German side Stuttgart for the unsettled Portuguese star, but the Spaniards are ready to fight it out for his signature.
"The subject of Kleberson is very difficult with Manchester United.
"We also have an interest in Hugo Viana and the negotiations have been initiated with Newcastle and we know that other clubs are interested in the player."
