DONE DEAL! In-demand Nani signs three-year Valencia contract

In-demand Portugal winger Luis Nani has agreed a three-year to join Valencia, the LaLiga club has announced.

The 29-year-old has impressed at Euro 2016 this summer and has been linked to a number of clubs, including Inter Milan, former side Manchester United and Stoke City.

Potters assistant Mark Bowen told talkSPORT on Monday that the club were keen to lure the winger back to the Premier League, but it appears the Portuguese star has opted for a move to Spain instead.

Valencia have paid Nani’s current club Fenerbahce a reported €8.5million in transfer fees.

A statement from Valencia read: “Valencia Club de Futbol have reached an agreement with Portuguese international Luis Carlos Almeida – ‘Nani’ – for the player to join the club for the next three seasons.

“He is currently in France with the Portuguese national team, who will play in the Euro 2016 semi-finals against Wales this Wednesday.

“He has represented his country on 101 occasions, scoring 20 goals – two of which have come in the ongoing tournament.

“Nani will be officially presented as a Valencia CF player in the coming days.”

Nani left Man United for Turkey in the summer of 2015, having also spent a loan spell back at former club Sporting Lisbon.

During his time at Old Trafford, Nani was part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s successful side and won the Premier League four times as well as the 2008 Champions League final.
