Apparently, DM is going to offer £4m for the Valencia captain. Does anybody know anything about him e.g. defensive midfielder? This was on the BBC website.

This is the Wildpedia entry on him

David Albelda Aliqués (born September 1, 1977, Alzira, Spain) is a Spanish football player. Albelda is currently captain of Valencia CF. He has also played for Spain and won a silver medal at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. He also played in 1997 FIFA World Youth Championship. Albelda has also been part of the Spanish squad in the 2002 FIFA World Cup and 2006 FIFA World Cup.

Albelda is a defensive midfielder who started his career as a centre-back. He is best known for his leadership skills. He has been captain of Valencia since the departure of Gaizka Mendieta. With a solid and robust frame, Albelda makes his presence felt in the middle of the pitch. With Valencia and Spain, Albelda plays a holding role, trying to contain the attacking midfielders of the opposition. He also moves forward regularly, especially during set pieces and is a key figure in Valencia’s counter attack, with much depending on him because of his ability to lead from the front and influence teammates

type his name in Wikipedia. You’ll info on him. In the papers it says he is surplus to requirements and that his manager said he can leave, dosnt that mean he will be available for a minimal fee or even on a free, because 4mil for a 31 year old is expensive, given the fact that he is not rated anymore by his club.
