‘Financial reasons stopped my Premier League transfer’ – Everton and Chelsea target Aymen Abdennour reveals why he stayed put at Valencia
The two English clubs were heavily linked with the Valencia defender as they both made reinforcing their backlines a transfer window priority.
However, Abdennour says he spent the summer discussing a move to the Premier League but ended up staying put in Spain.
He told Marca: “I was negotiating with English clubs during the transfer window but for financial reasons the transfer did not happen.
“Valencia is a great club and I have no problem continuing because I have four years left on my contract.”
