Getafe to ship out three

Getafe are reported as keen to reduce their playing staff from 26 players to 23 during this January transfer window.

The Madrid side’s sporting director Toni Munoz [pictured] actually confirmed this theory back in August before the close of the summer transfer window, but in keeping hold of players such as Dani Guiza, still have numbers at 26.

Guiza, who has yet to feature for the team despite his striking colleagues struggling so far in front of goal, is a favourite to depart this winter, alongside Borja Fernandez, who has also yet to register a single minute of action under Luis Garcia Plaza this term.

Hercules, Real Betis and Real Zaragoza have all reportedly lined up offers for Guiza, but have all been rejected by the player for failing to match his current €1.5m wage.

Borja, meanwhile, is believed to be more flexible on a potential departure and is of interest to Real Valladolid, who he spent four years at before his move to Getafe in 2010.

Adrian Colunga, who last week complained of not getting a fair amount of playing time at the club, Hugo Fraile and some of the less-involved midfielders of the squad are all identified today as other possible departures from the Coliseum Alfonso Perez this winter.

The club are also understood to be in the market for another striker, but working on the understanding that any arrival will have to be supplemented by an additional departure, to meet the target 23-man squad size.
