Fabrizio Romano has revealed that a deal has been completed to take Bryan Gil to Valencia on loan for the remainder of the season.
Romano has also moved to clarify that the agreement does not include the possibility of Valencia extending the deal for a further year, or having the option to buy the Spanish international on a permanent basis.
Gil only arrived at Tottenham Hotspur during the summer from Sevilla in a £21million deal which also saw Erik Lamela head to the La Liga outfit as part of the agreement (Independent).
The 21-year-old has struggled for regular Premier League game time at Tottenham, with all of his nine of his top-flight appearances coming off the bench.
Earlier this week, Gil questioned a report on Twitter from Mundo Deportivo which suggested that the winger was unhappy with life in England and was desperate to return to his homeland.
Romano expects an official statement to be released soon after Spurs gave the green light.

While it is good news that Gil is set to get a chance of regular first-team football, a return to Spain does little to benefit him in terms of furthering his football education in England which a loan spell at the likes of Norwich or Burnley would have achieved.
