Villarreal have completed a deal to bring Giovani Lo Celso back to La Liga as part of a deadline loan deal.
The Yellow Submarine have been working out the details of a move to Tottenham in recent days after Lo Celso dropped down the pecking order from Antonio Conte in recent weeks.
Spurs have now confirmed that an agreement has been reached between the two clubs, with the former Real Betis star signing a six-month loan deal, until the end of the 2021/22 campaign.
The deal does not include a purchase option on the Argentina international, but Villarreal are rumored to be open to a permanent deal this summer.
Giovani Lo Celso has arrived on loan to Villarreal from LaLiga for the remainder of the season.
Good luck Gio! 🤝
