Official: Carlos Akapo signs for Mestalla B
Valencia CF has officially announced that 21 year old Equtoguinean and CD Numancia (Spain 2nd division) full-back Carlos Akapo has joined the Mestalla B team. The deal will tie him to the B team for three years (till 2017).
Mestalla B coach Curro Torres has wanted to reinforce the right back position since he wasn't all that convinced by Sergio Leuko, the current right-back. Akapo is also capable of playing as a center-back or a right-back and thus adds to the club's list of versatile players. He could also get a chance at the first team depending how the right-back situation develops. Financial details have yet to be disclosed due to variables in the amounts.
