Barcelona have completed the signing of Spain hitman David Villa from Valencia for €40 million, subject to a medical.

Villa will undergo a medical scan on Friday before putting the finishing touches to his move by signing a four-year contract.

A statement on Barcelona's official website read: "FC Barcelona and Valencia CF closed a €40 million deal for Spanish striker David Villa on Wednesday morning.

"The Spanish international is due in Barcelona on Thursday evening and will have a medical on Friday morning.

"Villa will be officially unveiled as a Barça player at 13:30 in the Paris Room of the Camp Nou.

"He'll then make an appearance on the Camp Nou pitch. The stadium doors will be opened to the public."

The 28-year-old, who was previously a transfer target for Real Madrid, Manchester City, and Chelsea, is widely regarded as one of the world's most lethal frontmen.

He has scored 36 goals in 55 games for Spain and is closing in on Spanish legend Raúl González, who scored 44 goals in 102 appearances.
