Borja Fernandez has announced his decision to leave Real Valladolid at the end of the season.

The 29-year-old midfielder feels the time has come to take on a new challenge after four years at Jose Zorrilla.

The former Spain U21 international admits he has received a number of tempting offers and has already made up his mind where he will be heading over the summer.

"I have been contacted by several teams and I have made my decision, but I will not say what that is," he said in Marca.

"There are several reasons why I have decided not to continue at the club. The most important ones are personal reasons.

"There are economic reasons as well, but they are not as important.

"I am now ready to make the most important move of my career."


Borja turned down the offer of a contract extension at Valladolid earlier in the season and is widely tipped to be on his way to Getafe.

He is, however, determined to do all he can during the remainder of the 2009/10 campaign to help his current employers preserve their Primera Liga status.

"I am very comfortable here, but there are other teams interested and I think it is best for me and my family to move on," he added.

"It is important I look after my own interests, but no-one can question my professionalism and dedication.

"If I am chosen to play I will continue to give my all for the rest of the season."
