Valencia have agreed a €3million deal with Real Zaragoza for veteran Portuguese striker Helder Postiga.

Zaragoza will also receive a further €500,000 if the 31-year-old manages to hit the back of the net more than 15 times in La Liga next season.

Postiga's former club will also receive 20 per cent of any future transfer fee for the striker.

Valencia who finished fifth last season were on the lookout for a striker to lead the attack after the departure of Roberto Soldado to Tottenham for a fee of £26million last week.

The Spanish club also lost Nelson Valdez to Al-Jazira last month as the 29-year-old signed a two year contract with the Abu Dhabi outfit, with Los Che reportedly pocketing a fee of around €3million for his services.

Talks between the two Spanish sides had reached a standstill after Valencia had seen their initial offer of €3million rejected by Zaragoza but the addition of further additives seems to have clinched the deal for the Mestalla side.

It is believed that Los Che president Amadeo Salvo rang up Zaragoza's principal shareholder Agapito Iglesias and the pair have reached on a verbal agreement for the transfer to take place.

The striker who scored a total of 23 goals for Zaragoza in two seasons after joining them from Sporting Lisbon in 2011 is expected to arrive at the Mestalla for his medical on Wednesday before the deal is made official.

Postiga, 31, has had his fair share of clubs in his career so far as after starting out with Porto, he had donned the jerseys of Tottenham, Saint-Etienne, Panathinaikos and Sporting Lisbon before joining up with Zaragoza.

The Portuguese international was believed to be intent for the transfer to go through and has now signed a deal with Valencia which will see the striker spend the next three seasons at the Mestalla.

Postiga will compete with youngster Paco Alcacer - who has just returned after a loan season at Getafe - to be Valencia's principal striker this season.
