Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu could be on his way out of Stamford Bridge after his agent met with La Liga side Valencia over the weekend to discuss a January move, according to talkSPORT.

The Spaniard’s advisor Magico Diaz was pictured by local Valecian press, Superdeporte, entering the Los Che offices and it’s understood he met with Valencia sporting director Braulio Vazquez.

The La Liga outfit are hoping to sign Romeu on loan for the second half of the season, but the deal will include the option to make the move permanent in the summer.

The 21-year-old is said to be increasingly frustrated with his lack of first team action under Roberto Di Matteo. He started last season as a regular under former boss Andre Villas-Boas but found himself on the bench when Di Matteo took over in March and has made just four appearances in all competitions this season.

Valencia tried to sign Romeu before he moved to Chelsea in 2011 and it seems they have resurrected their interest in the player. However, Barcelona are understood to have first option to buy him back so they will have to make their position clear next summer should Valencia wish to make the loan deal permanent.

Would Chelsea fans be sad to see Romeu leave the club? Get involved in the comments section.

    Be gutted if he left, what a brilliant player he is, he can win the ball and is a very good passer aswell deserves a lot more than bench warming

    This guy shouldn’t be sold the best option is to loan him..maybe in 2years time he’ll be a better player.

    Keep him! He deserves much more game time! He can do all that Mikel can do plus way more! Sure the odd game or so he hasent been at his best and maybe didn’t impress as much, but who will with so little match fitness and frustrasion! Keep him, give him a chance! He was very good last year when he played regularly!

    The Keyboard is soft to touch somebody can easily type about 200 letters under one min with full of wrong info, though i haven’t seen the impressive side of Oriol, he’s talented but lack first team action he should be loaned to get first team action and he can even serve better as center back that DM.
