Villarreal sign midfielder N'Diaye

Villarreal have confirmed the signing of midfielder Alfred N'Diaye from fellow LaLiga outfit Real Betis, with the Senegal international putting pen to paper on a five-year deal.

7.5-million-euro fee

The 26-year-old arrives at El Madrigal for 7.5 million euros, plus another 500,000 if the Submarino Amarillo qualify for the Europa League in either of the next two seasons.

If Marcelino García Toral's men claim a place in the Champions League, that add-on rises to one million euros.

Two and a half years at Betis

N'Diaye joined Betis in January 2014 from Premier League side Sunderland, initially on loan before making the move permanent.

Having helped Los Verdiblancos win promotion back to Primera División in the 2014/15 campaign, he made 34 top-flight appearances last term as the Andalusians finished 10th.
