Waiting for a reply

Valencia have stepped up their operation to bring Fábian Orellana to Mestalla. The club let the player know of their intentions several days ago and now the ball is in Celta de Vigo's court. Valencia are waiting for an answer from the Galicians who would prefer to transfer the winger to a Non-LaLiga club. Orellana's situation is delicate because while he is still under contract, he knows that will likely never play against under 'Toto' Berizzo, after the two man had a bust-up.

Yes, from the player

Orellana has agreed to join Valencia, who are willing to meet the player's market price, around 3 million euros. The Chilean wouldn't even been on the market if he hdn't fallen out with the coach - Berizzo accusing him of showing "a lack of respect". Should the deal go through, it would accelarate the departures of Fede Cartabia and Zakaria Bakkali, who Nuno is keen to take on loan at FC Porto.
