Real Valladolid have confirmed the signing of Real Madrid defender Javi Sánchez until 2024.

The 23-year-old has spent the season on loan at Valladolid and the Castilian club have made his signing permanent, with the inevitable departure of highly-rated centre-back Mohammed Salisu this summer.

Sánchez spent 15 years with Los Blancos and will join Ronaldo Nazario’s club for a fee believed to be in the region of €3m.
