Skipper signs four-year contact extension:
Valencia captain Daniel Parejo has agreed a new four-year deal with the La Liga club.
The 26-year-old midfielder joined from Getafe in 2011, and enjoyed a prolific campaign at the Mestalla last season, scoring 12 goals in 37 appearances, to help Valencia qualify for the Champions League.
His new deal will commit him to Los Che until the summer of 2020, meaning that he is set to play a key part in owner Peter Lim’s vision for the future.
“ONE OF THE HAPPIEST DAYS OF MY LIFE”
Parejo stated his delight upon signing a new deal at the club, in an interview with Valencia’s website.
He said: “This is one of the happiest days of my life,” he told the club’s official website. “This was what I wanted. Everybody knew this and I was always confident that we would reach an agreement.
“We have a great team and we all identify with the club. The project is more solid every day since Peter Lim has arrived and, with Nuno [Espirito Santo] as coach and the squad that we have, we can be optimistic about the future.
“I have always said that there is no other club at which I could be happier. I feel very happy and I identify strongly with Valencianismo; all that remains is to thank the club and the fans for their faith in me.”
Parejo has made 149 appearances for Valencia in his four-years at the club to date, scoring 18 times.
