Valencia coach Celades delighted keeping Rodrigo from Barcelona

Valencia coach Albert Celades is delighted they managed to keep hold of Rodrigo Moreno.

The striker came close to joining Barcelona last week before Friday's winter market deadline.

Celades said, "The fact that Rodrigo remains is a huge satisfaction for us.

"Last week, he made a great effort to play against Barça and he is a player that we must appreciate.

"He is a special, decisive footballer, which is why Barça and Atlético de Madrid wanted to sign him."
