Valencia coach Ronald Koeman sees the youngster as an ideal replacement for former captain David Albelda, who has been told he can leave the club.

AS says Koeman isn't wasting any time and hopes to wrap up Maduro's signing today. The 22 year-old is off contract at the end of the season, but Koeman wants the player immediately and he is due in Valencia for a medical and to sign a Los Che deal in the coming hours.
