Barcelona and Valencia agree deal for Alba

FC Barcelona have agreed to pay Valencia CF €14m to re-sign Spanish international full-back Jordi Alba.

The 23-year-old defender – who has played every minute of Spain’s five games at UEFA EURO 2012 as the defending champions reached Sunday’s final in Kyiv – has agreed terms on a five-year contract at the Camp Nou and will sign next week subject to passing a medical.

Alba spent the early part of his career with Barcelona’s youth set-up but was released as a 16-year-old. He was picked up by Valencia and, following a loan spell at Club Gimnàstic de Tarragona in 2008/09, went on to score five goals in 74 Liga games for the club. 

Having worked his way up through Spain’s age-group teams, representing the national side at Under-19, U20 and U21 level, Alba made his senior debut at home to Scotland last October and now has ten caps to his name.
