"Eliaquim Mangala has today joined Spanish club Valencia on a loan deal until the end of the 2016/17 season.
"After impressing for both Standard Liege and Porto, Mangala signed for the Blues as 23-year-old in August 2014.
"The French centre-back made an impressive start to life at the club with a dominant debut performance against Chelsea’s Diego Costa in September 2014.
"He competed with Martin Demichelis to partner captain Vincent Kompany for much of the early period of the season until the Belgian’s injuries gave Mangala and Demichelis the opportunity to play together."
