Valencia allow midfield duo to leave Mestalla

Valencia have allowed Uros Racic and Fran Villalba to leave the club, joining Famalicao and Birmingham City, respectively.

21-year-old Racic joined Los Che back in 2018 from Red Star Belgrade where he had impressed in his home country, helping them win the Serbian Superliga on two occasions.

Playing time at the Mestalla has been few and far between however, having failed to make a single appearance for the senior side – playing 13 games for the B team and being sent out on loan to Tenerife last term.

His loan move to Portuguese side Familicao should see him gain valuable playing time.

Villalba, who was once tipped to be a star at the club – has also been allowed to leave for pasture new, joining English Championship side Birmingham on a three-year deal.

The 21-year-old Spaniard is a representative of the nation’s U21 side and has now completed his free transfer move to the Midlands side.

The tricky forward came through Valencia’s youth ranks, before gaining four first team appearances and a loan spell with second division Numanica, where he scored four goals and created seven in 40 games.

Thus far, Valencia’s summer arrivals have been quiet – seeing Jasper Cillessen arrive from Barcelona in a player plus cash deal for Neto.
