Valencia make Kondogbia deal permanent

The midfielder impressed on loan from Inter Milan this season.

Valencia have completed the permanent signing of midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia on a four-year deal following his successful loan spell.

The 25-year-old made 31 appearances for Valencia this season after joining on loan from Inter Milan, scoring four goals.

“Valencia CF have exercised this Thursday their buy-out clause in Geoffrey Kondgobia’s loan deal from Inter, with the Frenchman putting pen to paper on a contract with the club that stretches until 2022,” a club statement said.

“Kondogbia’s release clause will be set at 80 million euros.”

Kondogbia’s performances sparked some talk of a France recall in time for the World Cup but the player last capped in September 2015 was once again overlooked by Didier Deschamps.
