Levante defender heads to China

Levante and Guizhou Renhe have reached agreement for the transfer of central defender Nano to the Chinese club next month. Los Granotas have finally accepted an offer of €500,000 for the 31-year-old, who will sign a two year contract with the Chinese Super League side but will remain at the Ciutat de Valencia until the end of January.

The Chinese league season does not begin until March and Levante will retain Nano’s services for the next two weeks, as they have a busy time ahead with La Liga fixtures against Real Zaragoza and Getafe and home and away Copa del Rey games against local rivals Valencia thrown in for good measure.

Nano has been a regular in Juan Ignacio Martínez’s team this season, making 16 league appearances, yet the offer from China is understood to be too good to turn down, with a salary he could not hope to earn in Spain added to a multitude of incentives on offer.

Initially he will leave his wife and two sons at home in Valencia before they join him next summer, if and when he eventually settles down to life in the Far East.
