Ruben Rochina set for Levante move

Ruben Rochina set for Levante move

January 31, 2018 Off By Sports Writer

Levante are set to announce a deal for Rubin Kazan winger Ruben Rochina, according to various reports in Spanish press.

The former Barcelona man has not received payment from the Russian side for a number of months after financial problems, and his desire to move away this month has seen a number of clubs show interest.

Spanish interest from the likes of Real Betis, has also been joined with clubs in England, such as Championship side Fulham and Premier League side West Ham United.

After negotiations with Levante, Rochina is now set to be announced as a new player for the Valencian based club, with a medical set for the coming days.

Having began his career with Barcelona, the winger left the Catalan capital for Blackburn Rovers in 2011, much to the surprise of many.

A three-year spell with the English side saw him score 11 goals, before loan spells with Real Zaragoza and Rayo Vallecano.

A permanent move was then sought to Granada, where he spent two years before moving to Russia where Rubin Kazan activated his £10m release clause at the Segunda side.

His pending move to Levante will add to their attacking options, which have been poor this season, scoring just 18 goals in the league.
