Chelsea star hints at permanent move to La Liga

Oriol Romeu has hinted that he is looking to make his loan move from Chelsea to Valencia permanent this summer, by detailing that he is happy to remain there.

According to the Daily Mail the midfielder, who arrived at Stamford Bridge for 2011 for almost £5million, has played up the idea of staying at the Mestalla, having enjoyed a sensational season in La Liga. As of yet it remains to be seen whether or not Jose Mourinho will look to bring the Spaniard back to west London at the end of the season, but the player himself - though accepting that it is ultimately the decision of his parent club - is happy where he is.

According to the report he told the Daily Star: “I'm very happy here.

“The latest we know is that Valencia are happy with me and they would like me to stay. I'm very comfortable here, but we'll have to wait until the end of the season.

“I still have a year on my contract and anything can happen.

“It's up to Chelsea to decide.”

Despite initially being tipped to become a first-team regular for the Blues, Romeu struggled to make an impact after suffering an ACL injury during his debut season. As such he was sent out on-loan and, similarly to Romelu Lukaku, has since flourished elsewhere.

However, whereas Mourinho has a pressing need for a striker of the talents that Lukaku is possessive of, the surplus of midfielders at Chelsea could mean that Romeu is given his wish and allowed to stay with Valencia.
