Swansea City can confirm that Pablo Hernandez has completed his move to Qatar club Al Arabi for an undisclosed fee.
The 29-year-old has signed a three-year contract with the Middle Eastern club, who finished fifth in the Qatar Stars League last season.
Hernandez arrived at the Liberty in August 2012 for a then club-record fee of £5.55m.
A product of the Youth system at Valencia, Hernandez made his Swans debut in a 2-0 defeat at Aston Villa in September 2012.
During his time at Valencia, the winger played in both the Champions League and Europa League - and earned a call-up to the Spanish national squad as they finished third in the Confederations Cup.
Hernandez scored his first Swans goal in a 2-1 victory over Wigan at the Liberty in October 2012 and played and played a key role in the club finishing ninth in the Premier League and winning the Capital One Cup.
And the Spaniard showed his class once again in 2013-14, scoring some important goals as the Swans secured a 12th-place finish in the Premier League.
Overall, the 29-year-old played 54 games for the Swans, scoring five times.
