Jasper Cillessen has agreed a deal to join Valencia, bringing his four years with Barcelona to an end.
He recently spoke of his desire to leave the Camp Nou to find first-team football, questioning Barcelona’s decision to demand £53m for him. However, it now appears that the Blaugrana have managed to strike a deal.
Valencia confirmed the news on their official Twitter account, with a video of a man signing a contract, and then lifting a pair of classic Dutch clogs.
The Dutchman managed just 32 appearances for Barcelona, finding himself firmly behind Marc-Andre ter Stegen in the pecking order at Camp Nou. He largely had to settle for appearances in cup competitions, making just five appearances in La liga.
Cillessen has remained the first-choice goalkeeper for the Netherlands and featured in every game of their UEFA Nations League run, impressing as the Dutch made it to the final of the competition.
