Barba set for Real Valladolid

Chievo defender Federico Barba is on the verge of a loan with option to buy towards Real Valladolid.

According to Sky Sport Italia, the 25-year-old centre-back has agreed terms and the two clubs gave the all-clear.

It’ll be a one-season loan with option to buy, but that becomes an obligation if Real Valladolid successfully avoid relegation from La Liga.

This would be a return to Spain for well-travelled Barba, who has already played for Sporting Gijon and also Stuttgart in Germany.
