Villarreal have snapped up Barcelona defender Jorge Cuenca.

Sport says Cuenca, who has had limited opportunities with the first team despite doing preseason with them, has accepted the move to Villarreal for a fresh start.

The Spain U21 international will sign a five-year deal with Villarreal, while Barça will reserve an option to buy him back within a certain time frame.

The numbers involved in the deal have still not been revealed as the two clubs' lawyers finalise the paperwork.
