Official: Oriol Romeu is Valencia's Fourth Signing!!!!!

 After missing out on many transfer targets, the latest being Giovani dos Santos, Valencia finally complete their fourth signing - Chelsea defensive midfielder Oriol Romeu on loan. Despite some complications in the details of the loan deal, Superdeporte confirms that Romeu is a Valencia player for the year. The player is reportedly in Valencia to pass the medical test and to be officially presented at the Mestalla (date not specified but probably tomorrow). The player will then quickly join up with most of the squad in Germany (the rest is on vacation) to do some training before the first pre-season match against Karlsruher on 14 July 2013.

Romeu is Valencia's fourth signing after Nelson Valdez, Michel and Javi Fuego. He and Javi Fuego were brought in to replace the void left by the sale of Tino Costa and veteran David Albelda. The deal might include a purchase option and will involve paying his wages for the year.

Oriol Romeu is regarded very highly and appears to be a promising signing. Hopefully, he will meet and exceed our expectations and help Valencia to a successful season.
