PSV Eindhoven coach Philip Cocu has admitted the club is attempting to bring in Mexico midfielder Andres Guardado from Valencia, but there was no news Monday on when the deal could be complete.
“It is not just between us and him,” said Cocu after PSV’s 3-1 victory over Ajax on Sunday. “It is also (a decision) between the clubs, so we have to wait and see.”
The 27-year-old former Atlas player was left out of Valencia’s squad in its 1-1 draw Saturday against Sevilla as news broke of the possible deal and Guardado had expressed uncertainty over his future last week.
“I’m not ruling anything out, I’m very happy here in Valencia … we’ll see,” he told TDN. “The transfer window closes in two weeks.”
Guardado was shipped out to Bayer Leverkusen from Valencia for the second half of last season and suffered from loss of form and injuries, before quality performances for Mexico in Brazil again raised his stock.
Cocu appears to think Guardado’s versatility would be a good addition to a squad that is currently sitting at the top of the Eredivisie.
“Guardado is a multi-functional player that can be used in various different positions,” added Cocu.
