Valencia are still hoping to sign Alvaro Negredo from Manchester City.

Sky Sports reports that Los Che are looking at bringing the 29-year old back to Spain after just one season in England.

City boss Manuel Pellegrini has continued to deny claims that he wants to sell Negredo but a possible departure for the man who scored 23 goals last term is nearing closer according to reports.

It is believed that Negredo's move to Valencia will initially be a season-long loan with the view to a permanent transfer.
