Albion manager Gus Poyet told the club's official website: "Vicente is the special player we wanted.
"He has great qualities in terms of his ability and flexibility to play in a range of different positions.
"He also brings a great experience having played at the top level for the last 10 years with Valencia.
"This is a major coup to bring him to the Amex."
