From ESPN - July 17, 2017

Real Valladolid have completed the signing of former Barcelona goalkeeper Jordi Masip on a free transfer, while the Catalan club signed four new players to their B team,the teams announced on Monday.

Masip, 28, has agreed a three-year deal at the Estadio Jose Zorrilla, committing his future to Valladolid, who play in Spain's second division, until 2020.

Having joined Barca in 2004, Masip went on to make 79 appearances for the B team before Luis Enrique promoted him to the senior side in 2014.

However, with competition for the gloves from Claudio Bravo, Marc-Andre ter Stegen and then Jasper Cillessen, he was limited to just four appearances across three seasons.

And he did not make a single appearance last season, which prompted the club's decision to let him leave for free last month when his contract expired.

Meanwhile, Barca confirmed the signing of four new players for their B team, who will be playing against Valladolid this season in the second tier of Spanish football.
