Official: Eduardo Vargas Signed and Presented

Eduardo Vargas has been presented today at the Mestalla thus officially confirming the completion of the loan deal from Napoli. The 24-year old Chilean striker is only Valencia's second signing of the January Transfer Window after 19 year old Ruben Vezo. Pizzi asked for this player by name so he must have some sort of big plans for him and really believes in his potential. The loan deal is in the range of 500,000 euros including an option to buy for some 7-8 million according to some sources. Vargas has already started training with the first team and should be available for next week's match against Barcelona at the Camp Nou.

In other news, Pabon has sought a way out in anticipation of the arrival of Vargas and the lack of playing time. Thus, he will be loaned to Sao Paulo of Brazil for some year and a half period. Sergio Canales has been the target of many rumors recently too with Everton and Southampton battling for his signature. The fans don't want a young talent to leave the club and neither does Pizzi, but Canales wants regular playing time. In addition, the club is still looking at bringing in another striker in the last days of the transfer market with names like Pavlo Osvaldo, Iago Aspas and Mauro Icardi appearing to be the most likely.
