Getafe confirm Lafita swoop

Getafe have confirmed the signing of winger Angel Lafita from Real Zaragoza, who was out of contract with the Aragonese club.

Lafita began his career with hometown club Zaragoza in 2003 but was loaned to Deportivo de La Coruna in August 2007, with the Galicians activating a €2m buy-out clause in his contract the following year and he moved to Riazor on a permanent basis.

However, Zaragoza brought him back to La Romareda in July 2009 in a transfer that caused some controversy after Depor claimed both clubs had agreed on a €3.5m fee, €1m higher than Los Manos alleged they had offered, although the Spanish League sided with Zaragoza and he eventually became their player.

The 28-year-old has signed a four-year deal at the Coliseum Alfonso Perez and will be officially unveiled on Wednesday.
