Kondogbia has option at Valencia

Valencia have confirmed an option to buy Geoffrey Kondogbia permanently at the end of the campaign and ‘have an agreement’ with the player.

The French midfielder joined Los Che on a season-long loan deal from Inter this summer and the club reportedly held an option to buy at the end of the season for €25m plus 30 per cent of any future sale.

“We have a right to buy at the end of the season and already have an agreement with Kondogbia should we exercise the option,” Valencia director general Mateo Alemany confirmed in a press conference.

Kondogbia’s strong start to life at the Mestalla – including a goal at Real Madrid – was tempered somewhat by a red card in Sunday’s 3-2 win at Real Sociedad.

The 24-year-old joined the Nerazzurri from Monaco in 2015 for €36m plus bonuses, but struggled to make an impact in Serie A.
