Wolves striker Rafa Mir has been linked with a move to Spanish side Valencia in recent weeks.

Porto are apparently interested too, after Mir shone out on loan at Huesca last season.

Former Getafe boss Jose Bordalas was unveiled as the new boss at Valencia yesterday.

He was asked about Mir amid the transfer links and didn’t pass up the opportunity to praise him.

As per El Desmarque, Bordalas said: “Rafa Mir is a very good player and he is a possibility.

“Work is being done to bring in a center-back, a midfielder and a forward. But there may be other positions that are reinforced as well.”


The latest report on Mir’s future claimed that Valencia were keen but didn’t have the money to buy him right now.

But Bordalas didn’t rule his new side out of a swoop and was actually fairly bullish by managerial standards in terms of his praise of Mir.

Where will Mir end up?

Mir admitted earlier this month that he doesn’t know if he’ll be at Molineux next season.

The Athletic report that Mir, 24, is expected to leave in order to help fund summer reinforcements for Bruno Lage.

Now it just remains to be seen who comes up with the money but it seems Bordalas would like his new employers to do exactly that.
