Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has apparently told the club that he will see through the remaining year of his contract with the club and will move on next summer instead, Sky Sports reports.

The 31-year-old had made it clear earlier this year that he would not be signing a new deal with the Catalan giants in the hope of securing a new club that can provide him with a fresh challenge and speculation has already mounted over where he may end up.

He has just one more year left on his current deal and has been linked to the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal, but the club have insisted that will not be selling and now the player’s agent, Gines Carvajal, claims that Valdes will now see out the rest of his contract and leave for free next summer.

“Valdes’ agent has officially informed our director of football, Andoni Zubizarreta, that Victor intends to see out his current contract, which we are pleased to hear,” Barcelona president Sandro Rosell said in Spanish newspaper Marca.

The news will come as a relief to Liverpool who’s Pepe Reina had been mooted as a replacement for Valdes.
