Valencia coach Ronald Koeman has hinted captain David Albelda and veteran keeper Santiago Canizares could leave the club in January.

The pair have been left out of Koeman´s squad for the upcoming matches against Real Union Club in the Copa del Rey and the final Primera Liga game of the year at Real Zaragoza - and the Dutchman has indicated their Mestalla futures are now uncertain.

"It was a strong decision and it needed the backing of the president. He agreed with me that, even though these are important players, for these two games they will not be with us," he said.
