Angolan striker Manucho has left Manchester United and signed a five-year deal with La Liga side Real Valladolid.

Manucho, who spent the second half of last season on loan with newly promoted Premiership side Hull City, scoring one goal in 13 games for the Tigers.

His solitary goal was an all-important last-minute winner against Fulham at Craven Cottage, to give the East Yorkshire outfit three much-needed points in their quest for Premier League survival.

Manucho had hoped to remain with the Tigers after his loan spell, but Paul Duffen and Phil Brown have decided that he was surplus to requirement at Hull City, so he returned to Manchester United.

Sir Alex Ferguson has also seen fit to release the 26-year-old striker who has also had a loan spell with Panathiniakos whilst on Manchester United's books.
