Valencia said it has agreed to send French defender Aly Cissokho to Liverpool on a one-year loan deal.

Valencia said Cissokho “has already joined the English team, which will have an option to buy the player.”

The 25-year-old defender joined Valencia on a four-year contract from Lyon last summer.

Cissokho helped Valencia finish fifth in the Spanish league last season.
