Enes Unal has joined LaLiga club Villarreal after two years on Manchester City's books.

In 2016-17 the 20-year-old Turkey striker scored 18 Eredivisie goals for FC Twente during a third loan spell away from the Etihad Stadium. He had previously spent time with Genk and at NAC Breda.

He moved to Manchester from Bursaspor in July 2015 but did not qualify for the work permit that would have allowed him to play for City.

He signs for Villarreal, who finished fifth in the Spanish league last term, on a five-year contract, with the transfer being announced on the Yellow Submarine's official website on Wednesday evening.

Unal will be formally unveiled at El Madrigal in pre-season as he is in the Turkey squad to face Macedonia and Kosova over the next fortnight.
