Valencia have announced the signing of Manchester City midfielder Bruno Zuculini on a season-long loan.
The 21-year-old Argentinian only joined City this summer in a £3m move from Racing Club.
Zuculini did feature in City’s pre-season programme and was a substitute in the Community Shield loss to Arsenal but Manuel Pellegrini feels he is currently surplus to requirements at the Etihad.
A statement from the Spanish club read: "Valencia and Manchester City have reached an agreement for the transfer of footballer Bruno Zuculini until June 30, 2015.
"Bruno Zuculini is one of Argentina's most promising players. He made his debut in the Argentinian first division aged only 16 and he comes with the purpose to contribute to the team's midfield in this exciting new Valencia team."
