Valencia sell Valdez to Al Jazira

Valencia have sold Paraguayan striker Nelson Valdez to Al Jazira of the United Arab Emirates, the Spanish Liga club said on Friday.

According to media reports, Al Jazira have paid 3 million euros (3.93 million dollars) for the 29-year-old striker.

Valdez joined Valencia from Rubin Kazan a year ago and was used in most games as a late substitute, scoring six goals in La Liga.

He is now surplus to requirements at Mestalla because Valencia have brought Spain Under-20 striker Paco Alcacer back after a loan spell at Getafe, as backup for Spain forward Roberto Soldado.
