Madrid - Portuguese international winger Nani has reached an agreement to join La Liga side Valencia from Fenerbahce on a three-year deal, the Spanish club confirmed on Tuesday.

The 29-year old left Manchester United in 2015 for the Turkish outfit following a loan spell at his former club Sporting Lisbon.

During his successful seven years at Old Trafford, Nani won four Premier League titles, the League Cup, the Champions League and the FIFA Club World Cup.

A statement from Valencia read: "Valencia Club de Futbol have reached an agreement with Portuguese international Luis Carlos Almeida - 'Nani' - for the player to join the club for the next three seasons.

"He is currently in France with the Portuguese national team, who will play in the Euro 2016 semi-finals against Wales this Wednesday.

"He has represented his country on 101 occasions, scoring 20 goals - two of which have come in the ongoing tournament.

"Nani will be officially presented as a Valencia CF player in the coming days."

The deal is reported to be in the region of €8.5 million.
