Orellana joins Valencia on loan

Valencia have signed Celta de Vigo’s Fabian Orellana on a six-month-loan, with an option to buy.

The Chile international brings immense experience to the Valencianistes, having played 163 La Liga games.

The 31-year-old forward will play for Valencia until the end of the current campaign, but should they make the move permanent, he will stay until 2019.

"I'm very happy and very content to be joining this great club. I hope to do a good job," Orellana told the club's website.

"I hope to help the team in whatever [way] I can, with whatever they need. I'll do as well as possible.

"I spoke with [Guilherme] Siqueira, who I know from our time at Granada CF, and with Santi Mina who I played with at Celta Vigo. They gave me very good references of the club.

"I've seen the club's games and they've really stepped up their level a lot. We have to continue in this way."
