The 18-year-old, who has played for Valencia’s youth teams but is yet to make a senior first-team appearance, is highly-rated, and has been linked with a move to the Hammers in recent weeks.

It appears a deal in the region of £2.5milllion between the two clubs has been agreed and Bilic, speaking at his weekly press conference, said the transfer is “quite close”.

Valencia want to insert a buy-back option on the deal for the Spanish under-19 international but the youngster is expected to still join and will hope to push for a first-team place at the club from the summer.
