The 29-year-old Spaniard has penned a one-year deal after passing a medical at the Championship club.

Poyet told the club's official website: "He is technically very gifted and has great ability.

"He is a right-sided midfielder and gives us another option. Ultimately he is going to bring extra quality to the squad and a different attacking midfield option."

Lopez will not be in the squad for Saturday's Championship clash at Burnley and will join up with his new team-mates on Monday.

Dean Hammond had earlier joined the club on a one-year loan from Southampton while Swansea striker Stephen Dobbie joined on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
