Oriol Romeu: Chelsea midfielder linked with Valencia loan

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.

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
