Valencia Categorically Deny Villa Will Leave

After the player himself denied he would be leaving the Mestalla, the club have moved quickly to make a statement... The 'will he? wont he?' David Villa transfer saga has been one of the longest-running stories in Spanish football in recent years. It was Real Madrid who circled in the summer to secure his services, and now in January it is big-spending Manchester City who want to land the Spanish international. The player himself has vehemently denied that he would be moving to pastures new, and now the club have deemed it necessary to release a statement to re-assure supporters of Los Che that their prize asset will not be sold. Speculation has been abound that Valencia's far from stable financial situation would lead to key players being sold to balance the books, but this morning the club first of all denied that both parties had reached an agreement to allow the player to leave, and secondly that they would allow any other club to enter into negotiations regarding a possible transfer. Simply Not True Valencia's vice president Fernando Gomez stated in a communication to the Spanish press that the club had already demonstrated in the summer that they have no intention to sell Villa, saying the player is 'valuable' and 'one whose performance can only increase.' He continued by saying, "It is flatly untrue that the club has agreed anything with the player or his agent. "David is happy at Valencia and we are extremely satisfied with his involvement and performance. It is irresponsible that this information would be released on the day of such an important game (against Atletico Madrid)" Villa opened the scoring from the penalty spot in his sides 3-1 win over Atletico Madrid, a victory that moved Los Che into second position, albeit temporarily, in the Primera Division table.
