Udinese have officially signed Rodrigo De Paul from Valencia in a permanent move, penning a five-year contract.
The winger had been expected to arrive on loan with option to buy.
However, it was announced this evening that the transfer is permanent for a reported €3m.
Valencia’s statement confirmed the Spanish club will gain a percentage of any future sale as part of the deal.
The 22-year-old Argentine put pen to paper on a five-year contract with the Friulani.
He spent the last six months on loan at his old club Racing.
