Real Valladolid Sporting Director Angel Gomez has reiterated the club's interest in keeping Ghanaian defender Mohammed Salisu ahead of the summer transfer window.
Salisu,21, has emerged on the radar of top clubs in Europe with Valencia, the latest to express interest in the towering defender.
However, Angel Gomez says Real Valladolid will convince the defender to stay by extending his current deal with the club.
"He is a player who has drawn a lot of attention, that his projection is tremendous, but today there is no news to comment around him," Angel Gomez told Radio Valladolid 102.8.
"There are clubs of course that have asked about Salisu, it would be cheating, it is normal at this time of the season and even before, that has happened, but at the moment more things have not happened, but we will see," he added.
"We want that he stays and we want him to extend his contract, but we will also have to see the situations in which they arise."
Mohammed Salisu has been in scintillating form for the club this season, making 27 La Liga appearances this season.
