Both Valencia and Barcelona have confirmed the transfer of goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen.

Valencia revealed Cillessen’s arrival at the club in a Twitter post on Monday but no details were given on the deal.

Barcelona have now confirmed that Valencia have paid €35 million to sign the goalkeeper, who signs a four-year deal.

The fee makes Cillessen the joint fifth most expensive goalkeeper of all time alongside Thibaut Courtois. He is also the fifth most expensive Dutchman after Virgil van Dijk, Frenkie de Jong, Marc Overmars and Arjen Robben.

Cillessen departs Barcelona after three years and 32 appearances with the club. He was signed for €13 million from Ajax in 2016.
