BARCELONA, Spain -- Midfielder Denis Suarez is leaving Barcelona to join Villarreal on a permanent transfer after he cut short his loan deal at Sevilla by one season.

The 21-year-old Suarez joined Sevilla last season on a two-year loan, but Barcelona says all three clubs reached an agreement for the transfer.

Barcelona says the deal includes a buyback option.
