Turin a Vala? Can't Post

Today I read somethign regarding the Dagor Dagorath and in one version it is stated that Turin will become a Valar, or even before the last battle

and so were all their sorrows and stains washed away, and they dwelt as shining Valar among the blessed ones, and now the love of that brother and sister is very fair; but Turambar indeed shall stand beside FionwŰ in the Great wrack, and Melko and his drakes shall curse the sword of Mormakil."

and in other versions he will slay Ancalagon (but wasn┤t he earlier killed by Earendil anyway?) and then left the circles of the word and didn┤t become a Valar.

... unless the prophecy of Andreth the Wise-woman should prove true, that T˙rin in the Last Battle should return from the Dead, and before he left the Circles of the World for ever should challenge the Great Dragon of Morgoth, Ancalagon the Black and deal him the death-stroke.
Note 17; The Problem of Ros; HoME 12 The Peoples of Middle Earth

What was Tolkiens final word on that and what do you think? Did he become a Valar or left he the circles of the world?
