Levante seal striker double with Rochina joining too

January 31, 2018 Off By Campbell Finlayson

Levante have made two deadline day moves for strikers, with Armando Sadiku and Giampaolo Pazzini joining the Valencians.

Albanian Sadiku joins from Legia Warsaw with the Polish side currently on a training camp in Benidorm, just an hour away from Valencia.

The striker played for Turbina Cerrik, Gramozi Erseke and Elbasani in his homeland before joining Swiss side Locarno. He then went on to play for Lugano and Zurich in Switzerland too before moving to Poland.

He is also a member of the Albanian national side and scored at Euro 2016 in his side’s 1-0 win over Romania.

Also moving to the Ciutat de Valencia is Hellas Verona forward Giampaolo Pazzini with the 33 year old joining on loan until the end of the season.

The Italian has played in his home country all his career, starting off at Atalanta before moving to Fiorentina where he spent four years. He then joined Sampdoria before playing for both Milan clubs. He helped current club Hellas Verona back into Serie A but has fallen down the pecking order and Levante swooped.

He has flown in from Milan to complete the move.

Ruben Rochina has also joined the club. The former Blackburn Rovers, Granada and Rubin Kazan man has joined the Valencians until June 2018.
