Gary Neville will leave Valencia at the end of the season, according to reports.

The Daily Mail have reported that the Manchester United legend has decided not to extend his time with the Spanish side, despite Valencia owner Peter Lim wanting him to stay on at the Mestalla.

Neville will join up with the England team today, in his role as the national's teams assistant manager.

The 41-year-old has been criticised in Spain for joining up with the England set-up on the international break instead of guiding 14th-placed Valencia.

Valencia were knocked out of the Europa League on Thursday, losing 4-3 on aggregate to La Liga rivals Athletic Bilbao.

But Neville said: “Maybe it’s been used against me by the fans or people like yourselves, asking the questions, but it’s been a three or four-month commitment.

“I’m totally committed to Valencia, I think I’ve proven that.”
