Spanish side Valencia have signed Inter and France midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia on a permanent basis following a successful season on loan at the Mestalla.

Kondogbia, 25, has signed a contract running until 2022 and the transfer fee is reported to be in the region of €25 million (£22m/$29m). The deal is understood to contain a release clause of €80m (£70m/$93m).

“I’m very happy and proud to be part of this team, Valencia is a wonderful club and I want to be part of its history. We all know Valencia is an ambitious club, which for me is important. I also want to take a step forward in my career and things are going well,” he told the club’s website.

Kondogbia, whose form was not good enough to earn a place in Didier Deschamps’ France squad for the 2018 World Cup, scored four times this season as Valencia sealed a return to the Champions League with a fourth-place finish.

“Things in football aren’t always fair,” he told Valencia’s club radio station when discussing the snub.
