The Paraguay international, 31, spent the 2012-13 campaign on loan at the Liga side and has now signed a three-year deal with his new club after he was released by Manchester City this summer.

"I am very grateful to the club for the effort made for my continuation at the club," Santa Cruz commented on his move.
"The effort of the club, the support of the fans and stability for my family are the reasons for my choice."
The former Blackburn Rovers striker had been linked with several suitors including Serie A side Bologna, but he will remain with los Boquerones until 2016 and look to build on last season's return of eight goals in 30 Liga appearances.

Santa Cruz joins Fernando Tissone, Flavio Ferreira, Vitorino Antunes and Bobley Anderson in joining the Spanish side during the close-season.
