Barcelona coach Valverde wanted this outsider sold on deadline day...

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde sees no role for Aleix Vidal in his team.

Indeed, Diario Gol says Valverde was prepared to see the fullback sold on deadline day last month.

Nelson Semedo, formerly of Benfica, is clearly Valverde's first-choice fullback and a move in January for Vidal is being lined up.

Indeed, on deadline day Barca offered the fullback to several LaLiga clubs, with a deal involving Valencia coming close.

Vidal is aware of his fallen status at Barca and recognises he will need to leave after Christmas if he wants regular football.
