Reports have claimed that Chelsea are willing to let Romeu head out on loan and he has been linked with a move to Celta Vigo.

However, Valencia have emerged as the leading candidates to sign the 21-year-old, according to reports in Spain, and a deal could be concluded next week.

Valencia midfielder Canales, who is a former team-mate of Romeu at youth level for Spain, believes a move to the Mestalla would be good for the ex-Barcelona youngster.

"I have spoken with Oriol and I say sincerely that he is very taken by the option of Valencia," Canales told Superdeporte.

"This squad is perfect for a player to progress."

Romeu joined Chelsea two years ago from Barcelona, but he has been restricted to just 33 appearances during his time at Stamford Bridge.

He was linked with a loan move to Bolton Wanderers 12 months ago and he missed the second half of last season after undergoing a knee operation in December.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
