Valencia take Samp's Stankevicius on loan
Lithuanian defender Marius Stankevicius has joined Valencia on loan until the end of the season from Sampdoria.
Los Che 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.
