Villarreal want to buy Tomasson in June

Llaneza said: “We have signed him to the end of this season, with the option to buy him in June. I hope that he will continue to play here next season and for many years into the future.”

Tomasson said: “I would like to have more time here. I hope to be successful in these six months and to make a good impression. I had offers from other countries, but I have always wanted to play in Spain.

“I am very happy and pleased to arrive at Villarreal, a team that last year did things very well. I saw many of their games when they reached the semifinals of the Champions League and I am very pleased to arrive in Spain.”
