Real Madrid have announced the transfer of their defender Javi Sanchez, who was playing for Valladolid on a loan deal and will now stay in that club for the long term.

Real Madrid C. F. and Real Valladolid C. F. have agreed the transfer of Javi Sánchez.
The club would like to thank Javi Sánchez for all these years of commitment, professionalism and exemplary conduct, ever since he joined our academy in 2005 at 8 years old, and we wish him the best of luck in this new stage of his career.

No transfer fee has been announced. Valladolid wanted to keep Javi Sanchez around as they expected their promising defender Salisu to leave the club in the upcoming transfer window.

Sanchez was always a promising defender in Real Madrid’s academy and it now looks like he will have a chance to play in the Primera Division for years to come.
