Valencia CF only looking at loan deals

Peter Lim is supposedly open to few new arrivals at Valencia CF, but only on a free transfers or loan deals. The club still has a little bit of wiggle room in terms of transfer policy, but he wants to save those little remaining money for the summer where a better assessment can be made on what the team needs. 

He is also under pressure to finish the new Mestalla and is possibly even considering moving funds from transfers and salaries to construction in order to finish the stadium. Plans for the stadium have changed again and now the plan is for the new Mestalla to have a capacity of 40k people, with the possibility of adding 5k more. Obviously this is an issue as the current Mestalla has a capacity of 55k people and why would you build a stadium that is smaller and dumber than the existing one? It doesn't make any sense whatsoever, but that is for another article. 

Valencia CF is most likely not going to be spending any money this transfer window and any possible arrivals will have to be on loan or free. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it does limit Valencia's options and some targets might be automatically dismissed based on their transfer fee, even if that fee is relatively low.
