Watford midfielder Mario Suarez on loan to Valencia

Valencia, Spain – Valencia and Premier League side Watford have agreed to loan midfielder Mario Suarez for the 2016/17 season, Valencia has announced.

Valencia has placed a buy clause should they like to keep him on long-term basis.

The 29-year-old did not feature in the Hornets’ squad for their opening draw at Southampton yesterday and appears to be well down the pecking order at the club.

Suarez joined Watford in January 2016 out of Fiorentina and made 17 appearances in the second half of the 2015-16 Premier League campaign.

He joins a Valencia team looking to reinforce its midfield ranks after losing Javi Fuego and Andre Gomes in the summer transfer window.

Suarez has enjoyed stints at Atletico Madrid and Mallorca and returns to La Liga after 11 years in his native country before swapping to Italy’s Serie A.
