Manchester United loan midfielder Andreas Pereira to Valencia

Manchester United midfielder Andreas Pereira will play on loan at Valencia for the 2017-18 campaign, the La Liga club announced on Friday minutes before the transfer window closed in Spain.

Los Che will reportedly pay a £2.7 million loan fee and cover the player's wages.

A club statement said: "Valencia CF has reached an agreement with Manchester United for Andreas Pereira to join the club until June 30, 2018."

Under contract with United until June 2018, the 21-year-old Pereira impressed while on loan at Granada last season where he scored five goals and set up three more in 34 La Liga starts.

The Brazil under-21 player has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford after failing to make an appearance for the United this season.
