The former Barcelona midfielder had been a free agent after his deal with Catalan outfit Espanyol expired on June 30.
The highly-rated left-sided star had been linked with a host of clubs both in Spain and abroad including Valencia, Deportivo La Coruna and an unnamed English club.
However, it is the ambitious Yellow Submarines who have finally cemented his signature, marking their fourth capture of the summer.
Villarreal boss Benito Floro has already attracted Sonny Anderson, Jose Mari and Fabricio Coloccini to Estadio El Madrigal, and has now finalised his squad for next term with the capture of Roger.
The 26-year-old will be officially presented by the club on Tuesday afternoon after successfully completing a routine medical.
