Former Watford boss Javi Gracia will be announced as head coach of Valencia this evening and is interested in signing right-back Kiko Femenia.

Gracia was sacked after just four matches this season having guided the Hornets to an FA Cup final and to their most successful Premier League campaign last time out.

He will now be managing at the Mestalla for the foreseeable future and has already started to look at bolstering his squad ahead of next season.

Watford Observer:

One player he is understood to have an interest in is Femenia, who he coached during his time at Watford.

The full-back is one of a number of players who could be heading for the exit door, following the club's relegation to the Championship yesterday.
