Valencia to Deportivo
Valencia striker Helder Postiga has sealed a move to Deportivo on a one-year deal. The striker rescinded his contract with the Spanish outfit prior to signing for Deportivo, reports from Portugal claim. Postiga was signed by Valencia at the beginning of last season, but only managed three goals in 15 appearances before moving on loan to Lazio in January. His time in Italy was not a happy one. In the six months he was at Lazio, Postiga only made four appearances, as he battled with indifferent form and injuries.
At the beginning of this season, new Valencia coach Nuno Espirito Santo made it clear that Postiga did not enter into the team’s plans this season, and that he was free to search for a new club. Since that time, the striker has been linked with moves to Sporting, Braga, and Benfica, though none materialized. Postiga will likely be Deportivo’s first-choice striker, but will face competition from Toche and Lucas Perez.
