Serge Aurier joins Villarreal on Free transfer

Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Serge Aurier has joined Spanish side Villarreal on an initial one-year deal.

The Ivory Coast right-back, 28, was a free agent.

This was after his Spurs contract was terminated by mutual consent at the end of August.

Unai Emery’s Europa League winners have the option of two further seasons after this one so he could stay until 2024.

Serge Aurier spent four years at Tottenham after arriving from Paris St-Germain for about £23m in August 2017.

Villarreal are 11th in La Liga after taking 11 points from their opening seven games.

They were beaten by Manchester United last week in the Champions League group stage.

Aurier will join up with his new team following the international break.

His Ivory Coast side is playing two World Cup qualifiers against Malawi.
