Bani Yas have signed Argentinian striker Joaquin Larrivey from Spanish La Liga side Celta Vigo, the Abu Dhabi club confirmed on their Twitter account on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old has signed a two-year contract, having previously been linked with Al Nasr, Al Wasl and English Premier League outfit Norwich City.

Larrivey, who scored 11 goals in 35 appearances for Celta Vigo last season, is Bani Yas’ second foreign recruit of the summer following midfielder Mark Milligan’s arrival from Melbourne Victory.

They have also signed defender Thamer Mohammad from Al Wasl and goalkeepers Mohammad Al Naqbi and Adel Fadaq from Al Shabab and Al Wahda respectively.

Following the acquisition of Larrivey, Bani Yas now seem set to end their interest in Dutch hitman Michiel Kramer, who plays for Den Haag.

Their other Argentinian striker, Denis Stracqualursi, is expected to leave the club.

Elsewhere, reports in the Arabic press have claimed that Al Dhafra striker Makhete Diop has refused to extend his contract at the club after being unhappy with a huge buyout clause the club had inserted.

As a result, Bani Yas and other Arabian Gulf League clubs are set to pursue him.

Another Abu Dhabi side active in the transfer market are Al Jazira, who are poised to sign Schalke’s Peruvian winger Jefferson Farfan.

The website reported on Wednesday that the 30-year-old would be arriving in the capital on Thursday, having passed a medical.

Meanwhile, the club’s Argentinian midfielder Manuel Lanzini has joined West Ham on a season-long loan.

He is the second foreigner to have departed the club following Jucilei’s move to Shandong Luneng in China.

Burkina Faso winger Jonathan Pitroipa is also expected to head for pastures new.

The club unveiled their four summer signings — Brazilian forward Thiago Neves, South Korean midfielder Park Jong-woo, defender Fares Juma and goalkeeper Saif Rashed — at a press conference last week.
