Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes is set to leave Old Trafford in the January transfer window, according to his agent.
The player's representative, Gines Carvajal, claims that the 33-year-old won't be returning to La Liga after rejecting a move to Valencia this past summer.
Since arriving on English soil in January, Valdes has endured a nightmare in Manchester and hasn't featured for the Red Devils this season.

In fact, his last game for the club came on the final day of the 2014/15 campaign, so it's not entirely surprising that he looks set to depart the club sooner rather than later.
"He needs to go to a place he feels is right for him," he told Radio Marca, as per Sky Sports. "He won't be coming to Spain, unless he decides otherwise.
"It is obvious he must leave in January, and we are looking to find a move that he likes.
"He had the option of coming to Valencia in the summer and did not want to."
Perhaps a move to Newcastle would suit Valdes at this stage of his career. The Mirror claim that the veteran is open to a switch to St James' Park, so conceivably it's a transfer that could take off.
Ultimately, after losing No.1 Tim Krul for the long term, the club are in desperate need of adding an established 'keeper to their ranks.
Valdes could be that man and could yet have an important role to play on the Premier League scene.
