West Ham after Valencia starlet

Valencia prodigy Antonio Martinez appears on the verge of a €3m move to Premier League West Ham.

Both AS and Valencia-based Super Deporte report the deal as being close, with the latter reporting the 18-year-old striker on Monday said goodbye to his teammates at the Valencia training ground.

Valencia haven’t yet agreed to the transfer, it’s noted, but there is an offer and they will reply to the London club this week.

If Los Che do agree to the sale it will partly be because they won’t play in Europe next year and there is, as a result, a hole in the budget that needs to be filled.
