Samp defender Stankevicius joins Valencia

August 31, 2010

Lithuanian defender Marius Stankevicius has joined Primera Liga side Valencia on loan until the end of the season from Sampdoria.

Valencia will have an option to sign the player on a permanent basis next summer.

Stankevicius joined Sampdoria from Brescia in 2008 but despite an impressive first campaign with the Genoa-based outfit, he was sent on a six-month loan to Sevilla earlier this year. The 29-year-old is currently on international duty with Lithuania.
