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.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
