Montoya to be presented on Tuesday

The 25-year-old passed a medical on Monday morning before putting pen to paper with Los Che, who are to unveil the player on Tuesday at 11:30 CEST.

A graduate of Barça's youth academy, Montoya made his first-team debut in 2011 but struggled to establish himself at the Camp Nou, spending last season on loan at Inter Milan and Real Betis.

The ex-Spain Under-21 defender is scheduled to join up with the Valencia squad in the UK on Wednesday as Pako Ayestarán's men prepare for the 2016/17 campaign.

Montoya played on loan at Betis during the second half of last season.
