Valencia sign Nani


Portugal international Nani has joined Valencia.

The former Manchester United winger had been linked with a return to the Premier League - Stoke had expressed an interest in signing him - but he will move to Spain after Fenerbahce confirmed Valencia had triggered his €8.5million release clause.

Nani has agreed a three-year deal and will join up with his new squad after Euro 2016.

"Valencia have reached an agreement with Portugal international Luis Carlos Almeida da Cunha 'Nani' that ties the player to our club for the next three seasons," a statement on Valencia's website read.

"Nani, 29, has played for Sporting CP (2005-2007, 2014-15), Manchester United (2007-2014) and Fenerbahce (2015-16).

"His impressive record includes winning the Champions League and four Premier League titles with Manchester United and two Portuguese Cups with Sporting. In his last season with Fenerbahce, Nani played 46 official matches, in which he scored 12 goals.

"The Portuguese international is currently in France, where his national side will take part in the semi-finals of Euro 2016, and will be presented to our fans in the near future. Nani has played 101 official matches with Portugal and has scored 20 goals, including two at Euro 2016."

Nani spent eight years at Manchester United before leaving to join Sporting Lisbon on a season-long loan and he left Old Trafford for Fenerbahce last summer.
