Chelsea midfielder, John Mikel Obi’s agent, John Shittu has disclosed that the player will not be joining La Liga side Valencia.
Shittu denied claims that the 29-year-old Super Eagles captain has reached an agreement with the club on a four year deal.
Shittu was quoted in the Mirror UK as saying, “It is not true that Mikel is joining Valencia on a four-year deal. The information is not correct.”
Reports have it that there are strong interests for Mikel from Chinese Super League after Oscar moved from Chelsea to Shanghai SIPG in a £60 million deal.
Shanghai Greenland Shenhua , Guangzhou Evergrande , Hebei China Fortune and Beijing Guoan have all been reportedly in contact with Mikel, who is out of contract with Chelsea in the summer.
Chelsea are prepared to let the Olympic bronze medalist go in January and even though Valencia have made an offer, they are not able to match that of China.
