Pending on his medical and the signature of the contract, Villarreal CF have reached agreement with the defender Antonio Rukavina and Real Valladolid for the next two seasons. The right back comes free after playing last year at Real Valladolid, where he made 35 appearances (34 in La Liga and one in Copa del Rey) during the 2013-14 season. The player will pass his medical on Wednesday morning, then he will sign the contract and he will be presented at 13.30 at El Madrigal at an open-door event. The press conference can be viewed on the stadium video scoreboard for those who will be attending the event, and can also be followed on live on the official website of the club through 'Villarreal CF Live'.
Antonio Rukavina (Belgrade, Serbia, January 26th, 1984) started his career at Bezanija before brief spells at Partizan Belgrade and Borussia Dortmund preceded a 112-game spell with 1860 Munich. He signed for Valladolid on a free transfer in June 2012. The Balkan footballer has played 73 games with the Spanish side with which he scored twice.
The Serbian is an experienced player in top-level competitions with an amazing physical display. He is also known for his consistency in defence and ability to join in with attacks.
