Saadhak re-signs with LOUD amid Valorant roster uncertainty
Matias ‘Saadhak’ Delipetro has provided an update on his Valorant future. Though even he seemed uncertain of where he’d end up for a while, the Valorant star has confirmed he’ll be staying with LOUD.
Saadhak’s future is one of the biggest stories of this Valorant transfer window, with the Argentine in-game leader among the four LOUD players whose contracts have expired.
The Brazilian organization is already in the market for a new duelist after Erick ‘aspas’ Santos announced on Monday that he is open to offers. Felipe ‘Less’ Basso and Arthur ‘tuyz’ Vieira are expected to pen new deals with LOUD, but Saadhak’s plans were uncertain at the time.
Speaking on his stream, Saadhak said that his future will become clear in the coming days.
“This week, my fate will be sealed,” he said. “This week, I will sign a contract.
“I have received offers, and I am analyzing what I want for my future. I will be making a big decision. Staying in LOUD or going to another organization.” While it’d take a bit more than a week to hear news of where he’d end up, it turned out that Saadhak would stay with LOUD after all.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding this player’s 2024 destination, Saadhak has confirmed himself that he’ll be sticking with LOUD and has signed a 2 year contract.
This was no doubt a difficult decision considering the amount of negotiations this player went through before the confirmation, but LOUD fans can rest assured that he’ll be sticking around. That said, there was reason to believe otherwise for a good while.
Earlier in September, Saadhak was spotted in a Discord group message with NRG coach Chet Singh and agent Derrick Truong. Questioned about the leak, Saadhak confirmed that there had been a conversation with Chet but played down the matter. “It’s just networking,” he said at the time.
NRG are currently restructuring their squad after a disappointing season. Sam ‘s0m’ Oh (whose contract has expired) and Pujan ‘FNS’ Mehta have confirmed they will not be part of the team next year, while Ardis ‘ardiis’ Svarenieks has been linked with NAVI, where he will reunite with his former FunPlus Phoenix teammates.
