Feghouli refused to practiced with the team this past Sunday. The club managers decided that all players that did not play in the match against Sevilla would perform some stretching exercises before departing Mestalla stadium and Feghouli did not want to take part of it. This triggered the club to make the decision to suspend the player.

Within the club and fans all over have noticed the disconnection Feghouli has had. His contract is up this June 30, and British media speculates his landing place will be Tottenham. However, Feghouli will drift towards the best contract offer and Tottenham may have to go to war with Liverpool, Manchester, Fenerbahce and Inter Milan to land the target.

In Spain, Feghouli had been rumored for current Liga champions Barcelona, but with the summer signing of Aleix Vidal in that position, the club stepped away. He had also been said to have been a good replacement for Dani Alves, who had been in contract disputes with the Catalan club.
