One of the best players in Mexican history is headed back to La Liga.

Andres Guardado, 30, has been linked with moves to MLS and Liga MX for some time, but instead is swapping PSV Eindhoven for Real Betis on a reported three-year deal.

His new club finished 15th in La Liga this past season, moving Guardado from the UEFA Champions League to aiming to surprise in Spain.

He’s made 149 appearances in La Liga during his career, scoring 13 goals to go with 21 assists. He’s been capped 139 times by Mexico.
