José Luis Gayà renews contract through to 2020

Full-back to stay at Valencia CF for another five seasons

Gayà: "I am very happy and proud to extend my deal with Valencia. It's what I wanted from the beginning and in the end things have turned out as both parties wanted"

Valencia Club de Fútbol and José Luis Gayà have reached an agreement for the extension of the player’s contract through to June 30th, 2020. The deal keeps the academy product at the club until at least the end of the 2019/2020 season. Speaking after signing the new contract, Gayà said he was "very happy and proud to extend my deal with Valencia. It's what I wanted from the beginning and in the end things have turned out as both parties wanted. We’ve both emerged as winners from this and it is another dream come true. It was very exciting to debut in the Primera División with Valencia, and now I have signed on for five more years. I want to thank the club for this renewal. May 25th is my birthday and there is no better early gift. Now we have a game against Real Madrid, which is always difficult, but we have our strengths and we will be going there to win."

VCF Executive President, Amadeo Salvo, said that Gayà is "one of the players who grew up with us; he’s a Valencia CF fan through-and-through. That is a real success for us, to have players who want to remain with a project. When I said he was going to stay, it was because when Valencia CF want a player to stay, they stay -and the player's goal was to continue here. This is very important for Valencia CF, the fans and for football."

VCF General Sporting Manager, Francisco Rufete, added: "Congratulations to the fans. He is a homegrown player who is performing at world class level. He wanted to stay with us and we should be grateful to the fans, because we are going to have a homegrown talent here for many years. Each negotiation process has its moments. It is a day of great joy for the club, for the fans and for our Academy model. José Luis has brought a lot to the first team and is an example to motivate the players at the Academy. He shows the excitement that comes with growing up at Valencia CF, playing for Valencia CF and continuing your career here. Hopefully we can keep adding players like Gayà and Paco Alcácer to our first team, because this model will give much joy to the fans."
