Viana signs loan deal with Valencia

MADRID, Aug 23 (Reuters) - Valencia have signed Portugal midfielder Hugo Viana on loan from Newcastle United for this season, the Primera Liga side said on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old, who played on loan at Sporting Lisbon last season, was signed days after Brazilian midfielder Edu tore his cruciate ligament in training.

Valencia said they had an option to buy the midfielder at the end of the loan deal.

Viana was signed by Newcastle on the advice of Bobby Robson from Sporting Lisbon for 8.5 million pounds ($15.29 million) in July 2002, with a reputation as one of the most promising young players in Europe.

However, he struggled to adapt to English football and returned to Sporting on loan at the start of last season.

The midfielder had been linked with a move to Deportivo Coruna as part exchange for a possible deal for Spanish striker Albert Luque.
