The Mali international agreed terms on a new deal to keep him at the Mestalla until 2011 last week, and has now put pen-to-paper.
The 19-year-old, who has established himself in the Che's first team since a switch from Auxerre nearly 18 months ago, expressed his delight at pledging his long-term future to the Primera outfit.
"I am very happy: we have won three titles, I have renewed (my contract), it has been a very happy year for me and now I am here to triumph and win many titles," he stated.
"Everything has happened very quickly for me because I came here to play in the youth team and in one year I have won three titles."
Valencia boss Claudio Ranieri paid tribute to the powerful youngster, and predicted an exceptional future for him.
"I have never seen a young player so good at just 19," the Italian declared.
"If he keeps on getting better he will become a great player for Valencia."
