Valencia defender Jose Gaya has committed his future to the club by signing a contract extension.
With his previous deal set to expire in 2023, the Los Che skipper has penned a new deal until 2027, as confirmed by the club.
The news will be a setback for fellow La Liga giants Barcelona, who were believed to be interested in signing Gaya.
Los Che has been experiencing a deep crisis over the last few years. They have also lost several top players, including Dani Parejo, Ferran Torres, Goncalo Guedes and Carlos Soler.
However, they kept hold of Gaya, who had been with the club since his youth.
He has amassed 298 appearances with the first team and played a significant role in the Copa del Rey triumph in 2019.
Valencia has shown signs of improvement under new manager Gennaro Gattuso this season. They are eighth in La Liga with 15 points after ten games.
