Valencia have agreed a three-year
contract extension with Spain striker Roberto Soldado that will
keep him at the club until 2017.
The 27-year-old club captain has scored 35 league goals
since joining from Getafe two seasons ago. He just missed out on
a place in the Euro 2012 squad.
"His contribution has been fantastic, everyone has seen it,"
said Valencia president Manuel Llorente in a statement on
"His winning character makes him a key figure for the team
and a reference for the fans."
Soldado's original contract was due to run out in 2014.
Valencia finished third in La Liga, behind Real Madrid and
Barcelona, last month to qualify for the Champions League group
stages next season.
