Valencia signs French midfielder Feghouli

MADRID (Reuters) -- Valencia has agreed to sign French midfielder Sofiane Feghouli from Grenoble on a four-year contract, the La Liga club said on its Web site on Thursday.

The 20-year-old, who has represented France at junior level, joined Grenoble's youth ranks in 2006 and his contract with Valencia begins on July 1.

Valencia, which sold Spain striker David Villa to Barcelona for 40 million euros ($49.66 million) on Wednesday, did not disclose how much it will pay Grenoble for Feghouli.
