Official: Andres Gomes is a Valencia CF player

Valencia CF has completed what is now the fourth signing this transfer window, following the arrivals of Otamendi, de Paul and Dani Ramirez. Andres Gomes is a 20 year old midfielder who plays for S.L.Benfica and is said to be one of the gems of the Portuguese league, a great prospect. The statement from the club did not provide info on the duration of the deal or the cost. The signing of Rodrigo Moreno will take slightly longer since it is a bit more complicated. Andres Gomes should be set to join the team in the training camp at Germany. He will land tomorrow to undergo the medical.

With this we see a sign of optimism that the club is indeed making progress with signings and it is a reassurance to the imminent arrival of Peter Lim. With this however, we see Banega's place in the team taken and he could very well be on his way out.

Any thoughts on the new signing?
