Valencia sign Stankevicius on loan

MADRID - Valencia have agreed to sign Lithuania defender Marius Stankevicius on loan from Sampdoria this season.

"He's a strong player, good at bringing the ball out and capable of playing in a number of defensive positions," technical secretary Braulio Vazquez told the club's website on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old Stankevicius, who will join up with his new team mates after the forthcoming international break, played for Sevilla on loan last season.
