Valencia agree deal for Domingues

MOSCOW - Rubin Kazan's Argentine forward Alejandro Dominguez will join Spanish club Valencia in the January transfer window, the player said on Friday.

"Valencia is a great club and my family are very happy to be moving there in the near future," the 28-year-old, voted Russia's player of the year, was quoted as saying by local media.

Rubin coach Kurban Berdyev said he was sad to lose Domingues, who scored 17 goals for Rubin this season and helped them to win the Russian league title for the second year in a row.

"He is a top-class striker, we will miss him a lot," said Berdyev.
