Former Arsenal manager Unai Emery has been named as the new manager of La Liga side Villarreal.

The Spanish outfit have handed Emery a three-year deal to succeed Javier Calleja, who left the club earlier this week.

Emery, 48, who led Villarreal's rivals Valencia into the Champions League earlier in his career, has been out of the game since parting company with Arsenal last November.

The announcement sees Emery return to his native Spain, where he also enjoyed success with Sevilla, winning the Europa League three years in succession before moving to Paris Saint-Germain in 2016.

A statement from Villarreal read: "Villarreal has reached an agreement with Unai Emery for the Basque coach to lead the Yellows for the next three seasons.

"Unai Emery is a reputed coach with significant experience in international football."
