Patrick Kluivert has been given the all-clear to join Valencia after doctors confirmed that he had made a full recovery from knee surgery.

“The player has passed the exam he was subjected to. Patrick, after signing his deal, will be unveiled next Monday,” said a Valencia statement.

Kluivert was due to sign a three-year contract with the Primera Liga side until a possible knee problem was identified during a medical on June 10.

Kluivert damaged his left knee in January 2004 playing for Barcelona and missed three months of the season.

He moved to Newcastle United last summer but a combination of mediocre form and a poor fitness record, resulted in him making little impact at St James Park.
