The 25-year-old, who was on loan at Real Betis in the second half of last season, passed a medical on Tuesday and has signed a four-year contract, Valencia said on their website.

Pabon made 17 appearances for Betis last term, scoring eight goals, and combines physical strength with blistering pace.

He joins Valencia as a replacement for Spain striker Roberto Soldado, who joined Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur in the close season.
