Centre-back Eliaquim Mangala has joined Valencia from Manchester City on a two-year deal, the LaLiga side have announced.
The 28-year-old joined City in 2014 from Porto for £32m and made 79 appearances.
Valencia said in a statement on their club website: “Valencia CF have reached an agreement with Eliaquim Mangala.
WELCOME @Elia22Mangala! Good to have you back 🖤🦇August 13, 2019
“The French defender signed his contract on Tuesday to join the club through to June 30th 2021.”
Mangala spent the 2016-17 season on loan at Valencia before he returned to Manchester the following season and was part of the squad that won the Premier League title.
A loan spell at Everton ended after just two games following a knee ligament injury in 2018.
