Socceroos goalkeeper Matt Ryan has signed a six year deal with Spanish club Valencia.

The 23-year-old passed a medical yesterday and completed his move after the club had already agreed a deal with Club Brugge.

"[I am] very happy and excited to be joining a club as big as Valencia," Ryan told Valencia's official website.

"I know that the club is a very important institution in the world of football, and that this move is a big step in my professional career.

"I was following Valencia in La Liga last season. They are a side with fantastic players, who had a great campaign and took fourth place in the league. Our main objective now is to qualify for the Champions League."
