With Santander, he earnt promotion from the Segunda B and reached the Quarter Finals of the 2013/14 Copa del Rey.

Wanderers CEO John Tsatsimas has welcomed the injection of Spanish flair to the A-League outfit.

“Andreu has spent time at clubs such as Barcelona and Malaga and we’re excited to add this sort of football pedigree to the playing squad,” Tsatsimas said.

“It is important to get players of the calibre of Andreu to add a significant backbone to our squad in the middle of the park.

“We look forward to welcoming Andreu to our club when he arrives for pre-season training in the coming weeks.”
