Valencia sports director Miguel Angel Ruiz admits some of their fringe players will be allowed to leave on-loan during the winter market.

Juan Mata and Stephen Sunday are among Valencia players expected to move on and Ruiz said: "Without going into names, it is clear that if we are getting players back from injury, then with a staff of 25 some can be allowed to leave.

"If there's an opportunity for those players who haven't featured in more than five games, then we'll find other clubs for them."
