The attacking midfielder and both clubs “reached an agreement for the player to sign for three seasons until June 30, 2022,”Eibar said in a statement.

Inui, 31, with 36 caps for his country, joined Eibar from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2015 and moved on to Real Betis after three seasons.

He notched 11 goals in 94 appearances during his first stint with Eibar.

Betis loaned him to Alaves this January. He finished the campaign, playing 12 games and scoring twice.
