'My new home': Socceroo Mat Ryan completes Valencia move

Socceroo keeper Mat Ryan has been welcomed by Valencia as his move to the La Liga club was confirmed on a six-year deal.

The Aussie national team number one has had his first session at the club's training ground on Tuesday after flying in from Club Brugge. 

"Valencia Football Club have reached an agreement with Belgian side Club Brugge KV to sign Australian international goalkeeper Mathew Ryan on a six-year deal," read a statement on the club's official website.

The club's Twitter feed welcomed the 23-year-old Australian with the hashtag #benvingutMathewRyan.

Ryan, bought for a fee of around A$10m has been brought in due to the injury of Valencia keeper Diego Alves. 

Valencia president Layhoon Chan praised the new signing: "It was not easy to find a goalkeeper of champions level. Mathew may be young, but has ambitions and huge potential. In addition, he has experience playing in Europe and internationally including the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. We are convinced that it will cause a great impact on the Valencia CF".
