Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta believes talks over a new deal between the club and goalkeeper Victor Valdes are going well.
Recently there have been rumours that the shot-stopper was considering leaving Camp Nou once his current contact expires in 2014.
However, Zubizarreta has quelled such speculation and insists that everything is on course for a new contract for the player.
"The conversations we've had with his agent and with him are going well. I won't talk about rumours," Zubizarreta told AS.
The former Spain international also took the chance to praise David Villa who scored two goals in Barcelona's comfortable 5-0 win over Cordoba in the Copa del Rey on Thursday night.
He added: "The public's reaction and that of his team-mates was excellent. It's not just the two goals he scored though, he's such a high quality player."
