Valdes did not make a save and conceded once in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Stoke City.

On a day that Middlesbrough controlled the run of play, Valdes was caught a bit flat-footed on an exquisitely taken free kick by Xherdan Shaqiri to level the score. The former Manchester United deputy mustered just two caps for the senior level side after more than 500 for Barcelona and will compete with Brad Guzan for starts moving forward. They'll travel to the Stadium of Light to take on Sunderland next Sunday.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valdes is starting on Saturday against Stoke City.

Valdes gets the opening-day call ahead of Brad Guzan, though Stoke have a number of attackers that could make it a tough day overall.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valdes signed a two-year contract with Middlesbrough on Thursday after a free transfer from Manchester United.

Valdes has a considerable history with Barcelona, but his stint with Manchester United was almost a waste, as the club apparently though Sergio Romero was a better backup for David de Gea. It's unclear if Valdes will start over Dimitrios Konstantpopoulos, though he'll at least get a shot to compete for the job.

Valdes completed a long-awaited move away from Manchester United by agreeing to a loan with Standard Liege until the end of the current season, reports the Daily Mail.

Valdes signed a contract with Manchester United in 2015 before falling out of favor with manager Louis van Gaal. He has been training alone since last season, and will now work to displace Guillaume Hubert as Liege's first choice in goal.

Espanyol have made an offer to bring Valdes back to Spain in January after being frozen out of the side at Manchester United, reports the Daily Mail.

Valdes has continued his exile from the club, training alone at the team complex. He is widely expected to be offloaded in January, but has been interested in remaining in the Premier League.

Newcastle are believed to be interested in bringing in Valdes on an emergency loan, the Shields Gazette reports.

With No. 1 keeper Tim Krul out for the year with a torn ACL and backups Karl Darlow (ankle) and Rob Eliott (thigh, shoulder) also dealing with injuries, the Toon are left with just 18-year-old Freddie Woodman to play in goal. Valdes has been playing with the United U-21 side for most of the season, with David de Gea the clear No. 1 and Sergio Romero the backup, giving United little reason to hold onto Valdes.

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal said that the club plans to sell Valdes this summer because the keeper refused to play for the reserves side last season, reports Sky Sports.

Valdes did not travel with the side on their summer tour, but had vowed to stay with the club to fight for a spot. Van Gaal said that he was for sale due to refusing to follow the club's philosophy.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Valdes was unavailable for Saturday's match against Sunderland because of a small injury, manager Louis van Gaal said after the match, the Daily Mirror reports.

With David de Gea getting the start, Valdes wasn't like to play anyway, though de Gea did pull up limp at one point, forcing Anders Lindegaard to briefly warm up. De Gea remained in the game and doesn't look likely to miss much time, which will continue to stunt Valdes' fantasy potential.
