Levante have completed the signing of Rubin Kazan midfielder Ruben Rochina for the remainder of the campaign, the club have confirmed.
The 26-year-old departed the Russian club, who have come into financial difficulties in recent times and who reportedly owe the midfielder several months’ wages.
Respected RAC1 journalist Gerard Romero broke the news on Wednesday that the left-footed midfielder has arrived into Valencia on Wednesday to complete his move to the struggling top flight club.
Rochina joined Rubin Kazan from Granada in a €10m deal in 2016 when Javi Gracia was the manager of the Eastern Europe side, signing several players from La Liga.
The Barcelona youth graduate spent three-and-a-half seasons in England with Blackburn Rovers whilst also enjoying short-term stints with Real Zaragoza and Rayo Vallecano.
Levante currently lie 16th in La Liga.
