  • Santi Cazorla unveiled at Villarreal

So, it was left to Villarreal to unveil their new man on Thursday and, playing on Cazorla's "Little Magician" nickname, the club chose to formally welcome him back on board in fitting fashion.

The midfielder was at risk of having his foot amputated after contracting an infection following one of a number of Achilles surgeries.

Villarreal unveiled Santi Cazorla at Estadio de la Ceramica stadium.

Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla signed a contract with a representative of La Liga (the top division of Spanish Primera division) Villarreal.

Usually, when a new singing comes to your club you are usually greeted with a smiling picture or possibly a fancy video of them doing a few keepy-uppies but not at Villarreal.

The 33-year-old believes that he still has some years left in the game.

But Cazorla was offered the chance to join Villarreal for pre-season and made his return to action 636 days on from his last Arsenal appearance, in a pre-season friendly against Hercules.

"I'm grateful to Villarreal, not just for how they opened the doors to me when I was 18, but for their unconditional support through hard moments and for re-opening the doors to me [now]", Cazorla added. "It's a club that for me is an example and that always does things well despite the difficulties", Cazorla added.

"I've always said that giving up was not an option".

"I have to enjoy the moment, but I'm demanding and I want to keep improving".

"Now it's time to give everything for this shirt and this club".
