OFFICIAL : Valencia Signs Mangala On Loan From Manchester City
Valencia have completed the signing of Manchester City defender Eliaquim Mangala on a season-long loan deal.
The Frenchman arrives at the Mestalla Stadium as a replacement for Shkodran Mustafi, who joined Arsenal on Tuesday.
The French centre-back becomes the latest high-profile member of the Man City squad to leave on a temporary basis, with Joe Hart, Samir Nasri and Wilfried Bony all not part of by Pep Guardiola plan this season.
Mangala made 24 Premier League starts for the Citizens last season but ultimately failed to make a lasting impression on the Spaniard.
Mangala moved to the Etihad from Porto in 2014 for £32m but has struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League.
