Valencia loan out Gago

Valencia's Fernando Gago will return to his homeland to join Velez Sarsfield for the remainder of the season.

Gago was earlier linked to a permanent move to Boca Juniors, but when that deal fell through it seemed he would stay in La Liga. The midfielder explained he was surprised that a last-gasp bid was made for him before the close of the transfer window.

"It took me by surprise," he told Rock & Pop. "My plan was to stay at Valencia. I'm in Argentina for six months, then I will return to Valencia.

"I was not hoping to leave Valencia. [Ernesto] Valverde told me that he would not consider me. I need to play to have the opportunity to be in the team.

"Valencia told me they never got an offer from Boca for me. I got nothing official from them. Since I went to Real Madrid, Boca have said every year that they love. You have to wonder if it's true.

"Boca is my home. I grew up there from when I was little. I spoke to [Argentina coach Alejandro] Sabella before signing for Velez. Personally, and sportingly, Velez was the best option."

It is reported Fernando Gago is unhappy in Valencia, and has been since manager Mauricio Pellegrino exited the club.
