Villarreal president Fernando Roig has revealed that Arsenal midfielder Robert Pires will be unveiled as a new signing at the club next week.

“Nihat Kahveci is done and next week Pires will arrive and these will be the club’s first two signings,” Roig told Spanish TV station Canal Nou.

“Pires is a player who is competing in a Champions League final and when this is done he will be a free agent, and he will come to do the presentation with Villarreal.”

Pires is playing for Arsenal in the Champions League final against Barcelona in Paris on Wednesday.
