Villarreal sign Javi Ontiveros from Malaga

Villarreal have completed the signing of Malaga winger Javi Ontiveros in a €7.5m deal, it has been confirmed by the club.

The 21-year-old has penned a five-year contract with the Yellow Submarine after netting four goals and providing four assists in the second tier last season for the Andalusian club.

Despite his undoubted talent, the former Spain youth international has had his temperament called into question and picked up 11 yellow cards in the league last season.

Primarily a right winger, Ontiveros had been a member of Malaga’s first-team squad since 2015.
