The Spanish international was rumoured to leave the Catalan giants with only a year left on his contract, but after receiving assurances from Valdes’ team he will stay, Rosell has officially announced the ‘keeper will continue his career as a one-club man.

"Victor Valdes's representative has officially told (sports director Andoni) Zubizarreta that the player will complete his contract," Rosell told a news conference.

"We are delighted he will be with us next year."

However, Rosell has not ruled out a move for a Valdes replacement, confirming the club will bring in a couple more players across the summer.

"I believe we will sign one or two more players," he said. "That also depends on whether players leave."
