Ryan could seek summer move

Valencia goalkeeper Maty Ryan could be set to leave the club this summer with a number of clubs interested, according to his agent.

The 25-year-old has excelled on loan at Belgian side Genk – who reached the Europa League quarter finals – making 13 appearances since his January move, having played only twice for Los Che beforehand this campaign.

The Australian has found himself behind Diego Alves and Jaume Domenech in the pecking order at the Mestalla, leading to reports he could join newly promoted Premier League club Brighton.

"With Maty doing so well for Genk, there are clubs starting to show interest," said agent and former Middlesbrough striker Mikkel Beck to Australian channel SBS.

"He has a few games left at Genk still and is just enjoying his time there.

"He was a bit rusty at first because he hadn't played much in half a year but now he's just getting better with each game and is back to top form.

β€œHe's a top goalkeeper and when everybody sees him doing it week by week, they are going to come calling.

"That is natural and normal but we are not in discussions with those clubs at the moment because we first need to know what Valencia's intentions are.

"As things stand, he is under contract at a club that wants him back and is not in the market officially.

"Of course, we want some reassurance that he will go back and play at Valencia. We need to solve that situation first and foremost before we can talk about him going somewhere else.

"What Maty wants is to be somewhere where he is playing, and his ambition and plan is to make that happen in Spain with Valencia. The Spanish league is the best in the world, and it's where he wants to test himself.

"If that is not possible, then it's a case of 'where should we go then?' Mat's an all-round goalkeeper who can play anywhere, including England of course."
