Misfiring West Ham striker Simone Zaza is set to rejoin his former coach at Valencia in January after parent club Juventus agreed a new deal

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic has already confirmed he will not select the Italian again as Juventus would be due €25million to make the deal permanent if the forward made 14 appearances.

According to Italian publication Il Messaggero (via Calciomercato), a similar deal with Valencia is now in place and will be completed once Zaza heads back to Juventus in January.

The move would see Zaza join forces again with Cesare Prandelli, who gave the striker the chance to shine on the international stage when he was manager of the Italian national team.
