Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu has reiterated his desire to stay in La Liga when his loan deal comes to an end.
The 22-year-old was shipped out on a season-long loan at the beginning of the current campaign, with Valencia happy to take him on board.
Romeu had failed to settle at Stamford Bridge since his move from Barcelona in 2011, with a serious knee injury doing his chances of breaking into the first team no favours.
He has since recovered from the knee injury to become one of Valencia's most prominent players. Since December, he has started all seven of their La Liga games.
And after fitting in well in Valencia, Romeu has confirmed that he wants to seal a permanent deal from Chelsea.
"I wish to stay for many more years and help the team win games but they are the ones who will decide.”
This follows comments made by the player last week, when he hinted that he would be open to leaving Chelsea on a permanent basis.
"My position is like I have always said - I want to be comfortable here," Romeu said to the same publication last week..
"I want to give everything to Valencia, have a great year and finish the season well.
"When we finish we will sit down and talk about whatever. I've always said that if I was comfortable and happy, I will continue to fight for a year or whatever."
