Southampton chase Espanyol Victor Ruiz

Southampton chase Espanyol Victor Ruiz

Southampton boss Mauricio Pocchetino is keen on signing Valencia defender Victor Ruiz, with whom he worked at Espanyol.

Pocchetino handed the 24-year-old defender a first-team debut in Espanyol in 2009 before offloading him to Napoli in 2011 to fix the financial position of his side. Ruiz made just 6 appearances for the Italian side, and returned to his home country signing a long-term deal with Valencia. The player has quickly established himself as a first-team regular, making 34 appearances.

Pochettino revealed he is close to agreeing a move for two players in Spain. He said: “We are all aware Spain is going through difficult economic times and that makes their league very interesting for English clubs to go and sign their players.”
