Lille's Ricardo Costa will be a Valencia player next season as the Portuguese will travel to Valencia to undergo the necessary medical tests that will seal the transfer, reports Portuguese sports tabloid Maisfutebol. The deal will not be made official until the end of the season.
Costa, who was on a six-month contract at Lille after joining the French side from Wolfsburg in January, joins his compatriots Miguel and Manuel Fernandes at Los Che.
A Champions League title winner while he was at FC Porto, Costa customarily plays in central defence, but is also an adept wing man.
