The current Europa League holders Sevilla have confirmed that they are not interested in a move for Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes.
The Spaniard, who has 20 caps for his national side – had been in news to make a return to his homeland with the La Liga outfit Sevilla.
However the club president Jose Castro has now ruled out a move for the 33-year-old shot-stopper.

“Valdes is not an option. We have no intention of finding goalkeeping cover,” Castro is quoted as saying by Evening Standard.
“We have three or four players for that position and Sergio Rico is the one closest to keeping it for many years.”
“If we have good keepers, we don’t have to go looking elsewhere for them.”
The former Barcelona man agreed an 18-month contract with Manchester United earlier this year in January and has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford, with reports claiming he has been banned from training after having argument with manager Louis van Gaal.
Valdes has featured only two times in competitive action for the Red Devils, the last time he played during club’s 1-1 draw with Hull City last season.
