    Valencia have confirmed that they have reached a ‘preliminary agreement’ with Leeds United regarding forward Rodrigo Moreno.

    The 29-year-old is set to join the newly-promoted club for a reported fee of around €30m, potentially rising to €40m with add-ons.

    Valencia announced the agreement on their official website on Tuesday evening: “Valencia CF have reached a preliminary agreement with Leeds United FC this Tuesday for the transfer of footballer Rodrigo Moreno, at the expense of completing all the documentation and other formalities and passing the mandatory medical examination.

    “Valencia CF want to thank him for his commitment and effort over the last six seasons – in which he has played a total of 220 games, scored 59 goals, and helped to win a Cup title. Valencia CF wish him all the best in this new stage of his sports career.”

    The signing of such a highly-rated forward will be seen as a huge coup for Leeds United, who are preparing for their first season back in the top flight in 16 years.

    A source has told 90min that the Whites fended off interest from number of Spanish sides including Athletic Club – who were not keen on meeting Valencia’s asking price – to get the deal over the line.
