Keita, formerly of Sevilla and Barcelona, joined Valencia late in the winter transfer window, having been playing in China since leaving Camp Nou.


He told a Press conference that he was in talks with the Reds but once Valencia made their offer, he was eager to return to Spain.


“When we received the call from Valencia we were in advanced talks with Liverpool,” Keita confirmed. “But I told my agent we were going with Valencia and I’m very happy we did.”


The Mali international added that it was his experience of playing Valencia that made him excited at signing for the club.


“When I came here with Sevilla or Barcelona it was always very difficult. We knew we were going to suffer.


“Spain is a great country with a good lifestyle and I have no difficulty with the language. I like the football too.”


Keita watched on as his new side beat his old side on Saturday, Barca going down to a 3-2 defeat at home to Los Che despite taking the lead.


“When Barcelona scored the first goal I thought ‘let’s see how this goes,’ but it worked out fine,” Keita said. “The team played very well and deserved to win. Three points at Barca is not easy.”
