Valencia are set to sign central defender Eliaquim Mangala from Manchester City on a two-year contract.
The French defender, 28, had signed a one-year contract extension until 2020 at City in February after returning injured from a short period on loan at Everton.
He had spent the 2016-17 season on loan at Valencia.
Mangala, who won the last of his eight France caps in 2016, joined City from Porto for £32m in 2014.
“The club has reached an agreement with Eliaquim Mangala,” Valencia said on their website.
