Manchester City striker Alvaro Negredo has been allowed to move on loan to Valencia for the rest of the season, with the Spanish club having the option of buying the player afterwards, the Independent has reported.

Alvaro Negredo

The 29-year-old’s future has been in considerable doubt this summer despite making a huge impression in his first season in England. He hit 23 goals last term, striking a formidable partnership alongside Sergio Aguero and helping the club to the Premier League title.

However, he is thought to be keen to return to Spain, where his spent his entire career before moving to the Etihad Stadium from Sevilla in a £20m deal last summer. He is currently sidelined by an injury which will keep him out for a few more weeks, but his departure means Manuel Pellegrini is left with Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic as his striking options.

After completing the deal, Valencia issued a statement which read: "Valencia Football Club has reached an agreement with Manchester City Football Club for the loan, with an option to compulsory purchase, the Spanish international striker Alvaro Negredo, considered one of the best attackers of the national and European football.

"The footballer with Valencian family, will be presented tomorrow at the Mestalla. The club invites all Valencianistas to attend the presentation."
