Paraguayan striker Nelson Valdez is set to extend his loan deal from Rubin Kazan, the player’s representative has revealed.
The experienced footballer was loaned to Valencia in August 2012 after failing to settle in Russia, and he seems to have done enough to persuade los Che to extend his deal at Mestalla.
The player’s representative reveals the two clubs are in talks over a two-year extension to the current loan deal.
“Next week will be officially announced that Valdez will remain in Spain for another two years,” agent Gabriele Giuffrida told Izvestia.
“At the moment, Rubin and Valencia are working on the agreement. Now, I am waiting for confirmation from both clubs.”
According to the agreement, Valdez’s loan deal will be extended for another two years, for an additional compensation.
Valdez joined Rubin Kazan in a €4 million deal from Hercules in the summer of 2011, but he was loaned to Valencia exactly one year after arriving at the club.
He has mostly been used as a replacement for Roberto Soldado at Mestalla, but, nevertheless, managed to score 5 La Liga goals this season, despite starting just 4 of 20 league matches.
