ANDl Valencia Basket, as Efe has learned from various sources, has decided to execute the clause that allows it to put an end to the contract of Icelandic point guard Martin Hermannsson, who was seriously injured in the last match of the Endesa League and will be several months without being able to compete.
In addition to the financial compensation established to cut the contract, the Valencian club has offered the player to finish his recovery -which may last until the beginning of next year-, with its medical services, in its facilities and covering his accommodation, although for now Hermannsson has declined that possibility, although new contacts are not ruled out and the Fonteta club is considering the option of presenting him with an offer to continue once he is fully recovered.
Hermannson arrived at the club in the summer of 2020 after rejecting higher financial proposals with the idea of ??following in the footsteps of his uncle Jon Stefansson, whom he saw play at La Fonteta with Valencia Basket when he was a child. Both parties signed a two-year agreement, which was extended for one more season if the club did not exercise an exit clause, as it is going to do.
In the final stretch of this campaign, Hermannsson established himself as the team’s starting point guard and the entity considered not only executing the clause that allowed him to have one more season, but also offering him a new long-term contract.
Hermannson’s departure would join those already officially announced of Olivier Hanlan and Mike Tobey, while the Valencian club did execute the possibility of renewing one more season for shooting guard Klemen Prepelic and announced on Tuesday the hiring for the next three seasons as coach by Alex Mumbru.
