Valencia coach Quique Sanchez Flores is confident sports director Miguel Angel Ruiz will deliver him a new midfield signing.

Bids for Hamburg star Rafael van der Vaart and Porto's Lucho Gonzalez have come to nothing, but Flores says: "We have tried to open closed doors, but I know that a player will arrive who is capable of lifting the team and the fans.

"The president and Miguel Angel Ruiz are both determined. The player will arrive, I have total confidence."
