Spanish striker Alvaro Negredo has thanked Manchester City and its fans in an open letter.
The Spain international finalised a transfer away from the Premier League on deadline day, with Valencia having an obligation to make the move permanent next summer.
And after sealing a switch back to Spain, the 29-year-old penned an open letter to City fans on Twitter to thank them for their support.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “I want to thank the club for helping me become a better footballer and for making me and my family feel at home during my time here,’ he wrote.
“About a year ago Manchester City, a club that will remain in my heart, gave me the amazing opportunity to play in England. And for me winning the Premier League, Capital One Cup and scoring 23 goals in a season is a dream come true.
‘After this year I can only say thank you to the club, to the fans that have supported me since the first day I wore this jersey and of course thank you and good luck to my team-mates, who helped me settle in since day one not only as a teammates but as friends.”
