Official: Diego Alves leaves Valencia

Valencia have announced the departure of goalkeeper Diego Alves to Brazilian side Flamengo.

The transfer was confirmed in a brief statement on Valencia’s website on Sunday.

New boss Marcelino wanted just two shot-stoppers in his squad for next season, and they will be Jaume Domenech and recent recruit Neto.

Alves joined Los Che in 2011 from Almeria and made 176 appearances for the club.

The 32-year-old also became renowned for his penalty-saving exploits at Mestalla, having kept out 23 spot-kicks.
