Valencia have announced on their official website that they have successfully concluded contract negotiations with striker Roberto Soldado.
The Spain international has inked a new deal with the Primera Division side until the summer of 2017. Soldado joined Valencia from Getafe in 2010, and has since developed into a key player at Los Che.
The 27-year-old was the club's leading goal-scorer in the past two seasons, and club president Manuel Llorente was over the moon with the striker's contract renewal.
"Roberto Soldado's performances have been fantastic - that is something that everyone has seen. However, his dedication, desire to take Valencia forward and his winning character make him a cornerstone of the team and an emblem for Valencianistas," Llorente commented.
Soldado somewhat surprisingly missed out on a spot in Spain's Euro 2012 squad.
