Valencia have reached an
agreement with Russian side Rubin Kazan to take 28-year-old
Paraguay international Nelson Valdez on loan with an option to
buy the striker, the La Liga club said on Tuesday.
"The deal is subject to the footballer passing the relevant
medical tests," Valencia said in a statement on their website.
"It was a tough job sealing the accord because Nelson is a
highly valued player at Rubin," sporting director Braulio
"He is a very important player for us because he is a
forward who fits very well with the players we have," he said.
"Nelson Valdez has strength, commitment, speed and gets
forward very well. He will also give us goals. We have a lot of
confidence in him."
Valencia finished third in La Liga last season, earning a
place in the Champions League.
They begin the 2012/13 La Liga campaign on Sunday at
champions Real Madrid.
