A report claims that Valencia have rejected another offer from Barcelona for Jeremy Mathieu.

Valencia have reportedly rejected another offer from Barcelona for French defender Jeremy Mathieu.

Barca have been strongly linked with a move for the centre-back this summer, with the Catalan outfit believed to have submitted at least three separate offers.

However, according to Mundo Deportivo, Valencia are still intent on keeping the 30-year-old, unless his release clause, which stands in the region of £18m, is activated.

Barcelona are understood to be unprepared to move past the £13m mark.

Mathieu has a contract with Valencia until 2017.
