I will do my best in order to gain a place on here."

Goalkeeper Marcos Val�n (21) will be the first signing of Fabril. The keeper belongs to CD Lugo and was chased by Villarreal, but  Depor has been faster and although the deal hasn't been closed, his incorporation is something taken as granted. As the sporting director of Lugo said to the paper Deporte Campe�n (DxT): �For the moment, we haven't talked between the clubs, but I told to Depor they could reach an agreement with any player they want, there won't be any problem by our side. I even tell you: he could go for free. Deportivo knows that CD Lugo is enchanted to see one of its players going to their team." Meanwhile, Val�n  didn't want to talk about the subject, he only admitted the conversations are going in the "right direction."
