Mikel ponders move to Spanish Club Valencia FC
Chelsea’s Nigerian midfielder Mikel Obi is reportedly pondering a move to Spanish club Valencia.Mikel who is yet to feature for Chelsea this season met with Valencia’s sporting director Jesus Garcia Pitarch on Christmas day in London over a January move.
But the 29 year old Nigerian international is yet to agree to a move to the Mestalla stadium.“In the case of Obi Mikel, with Chelsea’s permission, I met with him in London on Christmas day,” Pitarch told Superdeporte.
“I informed him of the option [of joining Valencia]. He said he would think about it.”He also hinted that the move will be revived once Valencia appoints a successor to Cesare Prandelli who resigned last Friday after less than three months in charge.
“Now we will have to evaluate the situation,” Garcia Pitarch added.Mikel who will become a free agent in the summer has also been linked with moves to several clubs in Italy, France and China.
