Negredo awaits move to Middlesbrough

Despite training with the rest of the Valencia squad on Thursday, Álvaro Negredo could be set for a move to newly promoted Premier League club Middlesbrough. Following an agreement reached between Valencia and Middlesborough to sign Antonio Barragán (pending a medical), it looks likely that the former Manchester City striker will follow his team-mate on the plane to England.   

A move away from Mestalla for Negredo appears to be a mere formality, with García Pitarch pushing the deal along in a week that also sees the arrival of Nani from Fenerbahçe.
