Newly crowned Champions League winners Barcelona have signed right-back/winger Aleix Vidal from Sevilla, the Catalan club announced on Sunday.

The treble winning club are banned from transfers until January 2016 which means Vidal cannot play for his new club for at least six months.

Barcelona defeated Juventus 3-1 on Saturday to add to their Liga and Spanish Cup triumphs.

"FC Barcelona and Sevilla have reached an agreement over the transfer of Alex Vidal. The 25-year-old will sign for five seasons, until June 30, 2020," read a Barca statement.

The transfer fee is reportedly between 10 and 20 million euros.

Vidal will be unveiled as Barcelona's newest signing following a medical on Monday ahead of a presentation at the Camp Nou close to midday local time.

Vidal is seen as a natural successor to Brazilian Dani Alves, who could leave the club, after helping Sevilla to the Europa League in May.
