Eibar complete Orellana deal – report

Eibar have agreed a €400k deal to sign out-of-favour Valencia midfielder Fabian Orellana in January, according to reports in Spain.

The Chilean international reportedly has not future at the Mestalla and indeed has only made a La Liga matchday squad once this season, but was an unused substitute.

The 31-year-old only joined Los Che from Celta Vigo earlier this season but new Coach Marcelino Garcia Toral has no plans to retain him in the squad.

Eibar’s Fran Rico is set to be sidelined for a further six months and Orellana is viewed as a direct replacement.

Cadena Cope report a deal has already been struck despite interest from both Leganes and Getafe.
