The Yellow Submarine took to Twitter to confirm his pre-season arrival on Monday.

“He’s here! @chukwueze_8 started his special #YellowsPreseason training programme at the Training Ground after taking part in the Africa Cup of Nations with @NGSuperEagles. Great to have you back, Samu!” the club said.

The 20-year-old scored eight goals in 38 appearances across all competitions last season, to help Javier Calleja’s men finish 14th in LaLiga.

Chukweze will be expected to play a part when Villarreal take on La Nucia in a pre-season game on Wednesday.
