New York City FC confirmed that David Villa will leave the club once his contract expires soon.

Villa then took to social media to announce his move to the J-League to join Iniesta, who he played with at the Catalan giants.

"In my years as a professional footballer, I have had to make many important decisions. For an athlete, the ones made off the field are the hardest, and I find myself in another one of those moments now," Villa said in his video released on Twitter.
 
"Throughout my career, I have always listened to my body, people around me, and my instinct most of all.
 
"In those moments of doubt, I hope that a sign, a detail or something gives me clarity. A new challenge awaits, Asia."
