Jose Angel in Roma discussions

Roma are in talks with Sporting Gijon for Jose Angel Valdes, the player's agent has told Sky Sport 24.

"I don't know if the deal will be done today, but I do know that officials from both clubs are talking," Alfredo Martinez noted.

"I can confirm that Roma are in pole position for my client and they represent a great opportunity for Jose."

The left-back is 23-years-old and is a product of the Sporting Gijon youth academy. The player has represented Spain at Under-20 and Under-21 youth level.

Roma will be bossed by Spaniard Luis Enrique next term after he arrived from Barcelona B to replace Vincenzo Montella.

According to Opta stats, Angel provided 125 crosses in La Liga last term – more than any other player at his club.
