La Liga Side Valencia Receives Doyen Investment Group's Help In Player Transaction
La Liga side Valencia President Amadeo Salvo has confirmed that "Dorlan Pabon’s move to the club has been co-funded by the Doyen investment group," according to FOOTBALL ESPANA. Doyen, which "have percentage shares in a number of players across La Liga including names at Sevilla and Getafe," have been named by Salvo this week as the "investment group to have helped in their purchase of Pabon." Though it was "initially believed that the team needed to offload one of Aly Cissokho and Pablo Piatti first in order to fund the cash deal, reports were that Valencia had instead turned to an investment group." Salvo confirmed Doyen’s involvement, funding 50% of the deal "and in effect taking half ownership in the striker" (FOOTBALL ESPANA, 8/21).
