Montoya joins Valencia from Barcelona

AFP , Monday 1 Aug 2016

Fullback Martin Montoya has joined Valencia on a four-year deal after being released by Barcelona, the two clubs confirmed on Monday.

The 25-year-old Spaniard broke into the first team at the Camp Nou in 2011, but could not consolidate his place and only made 45 La Liga appearances for the Catalan giants in five seasons.

"Valencia CF and Martin Montoya have reached an agreement with the player, who joins the club for the next four seasons," Valencia said in a statement.

Montoya spent time on loan at Inter Milan and Real Betis last season, and will be hoping to help Valencia improve on their disappointing finish of 12th place in La Liga last term.
