Torres was in advanced talks with Sagun Tosu to follow in the footsteps of compatriot Iniesta - who joined Vissel Kobe after leaving Barcelona - but negotiations collapsed over personal terms.

The 34-year-old has announced via his official Twitter account that he is joining Japanese first division side Sagan Tosu, who are now 17 in the division.

Fernando Torres will join former Spain team-mate Andres Iniesta in the J.League next season after agreeing a deal with Sagan Tosu.

Dubbed "El Nino" by Spanish media and fans, Torres had also been linked to Australian club Sydney FC and Major League Soccer's Chicago Fire.

A World Cup and European championship victor with Spain, Torres made his final appearance for Atletico as a late substitute in Madrid's Europa League final win over Marseille.

"But at no point did I think about moving to another European team".

He said he planned to make his debut for Sagan Tosu on July 22.

Both players might be fighting for different objectives, as Iniesta's new team are now in sixth place, while Torres' club are 17th out of 18.

Torres, who spent the bulk of his career with boyhood club Atletico across two spells, has also played for Liverpool, Chelsea and AC Milan and won the World Cup and two European Championship titles with Spain.

Embarrassed J. League officials were forced to issue an apology in May after jumping the gun on Sagan's acquisition of the player in a post that was quickly deleted. They finished eighth last season, but are mired in a relegation battle halfway through the current campaign.

Torres added: "I've always been treated really well in Asia and Sagan Tosu have made a great effort and I'm very grateful".
