Roma’s Justin Kluivert has joined Valencia on a season-long loan, with the Spanish club having the option to buy him at the end of it.
Earlier this week, Kluivert looked set to join Premier League side Fulham, but that deal fell through after he was deemed ineligible for a British work permit due to his lack of appearances for Roma in recent years.
Early on deadline day, it emerged that Valencia were interested in taking the Dutchman instead, and it has now been confirmed that he’ll play there this season.
It has been reported that they’ll then have the option to buy him permanently at the end of the campaign for a fee of €15m.
Kluivert follows in the footsteps of his father, Patrick, who played for the club from 2005 to 2006. He only made 10 appearances in that time though, so his son will be hoping to enjoy a more successful spell.
