Official: Fede loaned to Cordoba

Fede Cartabia has been loaned to newly-promoted La Liga club Cordoba. The Argentine youngster broke into the Valencia CF first team under Djukic but has failed to impress new coach Nuno. Therefore, the club now seeks to loan him out for more experience at a club where he can get playing time. After all, we have Guardado, Viera, Carles Gil, Piatti and Rodrigo de Paul all who can play that postition so there won't be much time for the youngster to develop.

The loan is a one year deal till June 30, 2015 with a purchase option of 8 million euros. It's quite ridiculous to include a purchase option for a club talent. However, I don't think Cordoba can afford that amount considering they have been in second division for a while.

About the other player who is on his way out, Rami. With the price difference between the two clubs settled by Rami who was willing to pay the rest of the amount, Valencia CF now want the amount in one installment while Milan want three installments. This frustrated Rami since he feels the club has no place for him but it harder for him to leave. Meanwhile, while this is settled he is to train by himself.

Any thoughts on loaning Fede? What about the purchase option? What to do with Rami?
