Atletico Madrid signed French-born midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia on Tuesday.

Kondogbia’s transfer from Valencia was completed after he passed a medical in Spain. Atletico said he signed a contract until 2024.

The 27-year-old Kondogbia joined Valencia in 2017 after two seasons with Inter Milan. He helped Valencia win the Copa del Rey in 2019.

Atletico called him a “box-to-box footballer” with a “strong presence in midfield.”

He will help make up for the departure of Thomas Partey to Arsenal at the end of the transfer window.

Atletico is fourth in the Spanish league with two games in hand.
