Valencia close on Pabon deal

Valencia are closing in on the signing of Colombia striker Dorlan Pabon.

The 25-year-old has arrived in the Spanish city as he looks to put the finishing touches on his move from Mexican side Monterrey and, if all goes to plan, he will be presented by the Primera Division club on Wednesday.

A Valencia statement read: "Dorlan Pabon is already in Valencia. If the Colombian passes his medical, he will be official presented as new Valencia player tomorrow at 1930 (local time).

Los Che, who sold star striker Roberto Soldado to Tottenham this summer, are reportedly set to pay around 7.5million euros for the former Real Betis loan player.
