- Eliaquim Mangala has parted ways with Manchester City
- The Frenchman joined Valencia on a two year deal until 2021
- City failed to offer the defender a new deal after his five year contract expired this summer
Spanish League giants Valencia have completed the signing Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala on a two year deal this transfer window.
The Frenchman parted ways with the Etihad Stadium outfit after his five year contract expired and the club refused to hand him an extension.
He was part of the team that won the Premier League title in 2017-18 season - making 11 appearances in the process.
The 28-year-old made a total of 59 appearances for the Citizens since he joined them from FC Porto in a deal around £30 million in 2014.
According to information on the club's website, the player's deal is subject to him securing work permit with the Spanish authorities.
"Valencia CF have reached an initial agreement with Eliaquim Mangala for the French defender to join the club through to June 30th, 2021.
"The agreement is pending the completion of the definitive paperwork."

He kept 22 clean sheets and assisted two goals in the process but failed to find the back of the net all through his reign at the club.
It would be recalled that Mangala spent the 2016-17 season on loan at Valencia - scoring twice in 30 league appearances for the Mestalla Stadium outfit.
He will now have a chance to represent them until the 2021 with a chance of playing in the Champions League this season.
The defender failed to feature for Man City as they beat Liverpool to win the Premier League title with just one point at the end of last term. His last competitive game was in February 2018.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Super Eagles forward Henry Onyekuru has completed a permanent move from Premier League giants Everton to French side Monaco on Monday, August 12.
The two clubs have announced the deal on their website as the 22-year-old finally ended speculation surrounding his future.
Onyekuru has been on the radar of several clubs following the inability of Everton to secure a work permit and the Nigerian joined compatriot Victor Osimhen in the Ligue 1.
