David Villa is set for a reunion with his former Spain and Barcelona team-mate Andres Iniesta at Japanese club Vissel Kobe.

The 36-year-old striker has left Major League Soccer side New York City FC after scoring 80 goals in 124 games over four years.

Villa will head for a new adventure now in Asia, announcing the move on YouTube. He'll link up with Iniesta and ex-Germany attacker Lukas Podolski.

"The moment has come," he said. "It's decided. I have a new destination. A great challenge awaits. Asia. New trips. New country. New culture. New team-mates. Hello Japan. Hello Vissel Kobe."

Villa won La Ligas with Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, a Champions League with the Catalans in 2011 as well the European Championships and the World Cup with his country.
