Title winner
Del Horno, 25, returns to Spain on a six-year contract after one season at Stamford Bridge where he scored once in 25 Premiership appearances to help Chelsea win the title for the second year in succession. The left-back joined the London club from Athletic Club Bilbao in a €12m transfer last June. Del Horno has been capped ten times for Spain but missed the FIFA World Cup in Germany through injury. He is Valencia's second major signing of the summer following the arrival of Fernando Morientes from Liverpool FC.
