Ignacio González, who is a Uraguay footballer at Valencia has passed a medical and reports in Spain are saying that he will go on loan to Newcastle United for a season.
This is breaking news in Spain and we have had the news tgranslated by some of our Spanish readers (thanks!).
His nickname is “Nacho” and he was reported to was actually given the medival in Spain by Valencia doctors and passed.
The Valencia coach Unai Emery, was quoted as saying:
“It is my decision that does not remain in the group; I accepted the signing with the condition of which right now he does not comprise of the group.”
“I have seen him play and has conditions, but right now there are sufficient players”,
We think basically he is saying they can afford to let Ignacio go for a year because they have enough players.
Ignacio plays in the same position as David Silva so is unlikely to get many games un the upcoming season, but we hope Newcastle agree a transfer price now, so they can sign the player next summer, if he does well this coming season – and that price should be fairly low, we hope.
It is not clear whether the player, who is 26, will also have to take a medical at Newcastle, but we think that is likely.
This is breaking news and reports are coming from Spain – more as we get the information.
