Valencia have opened talks with Barcelona for winger Isaac Cuenca.

AS says Cuenca, now fully recovered from a knee injury, is set to join Valencia on-loan for the second-half of the season.

The Spain international hasn't appeared for Barca this season and is wanted at Valencia as they prepare to lose Sofiane Feghouli for Algeria's African Nations Cup campaign.

Cuenca has also been linked with QPR and Reading.
