"We're on the verge of closing the deal and just waiting for confirmation," he said after a charity match at Estadio Fernando Torres in Fuenlabrada today.

"He'll be be a very important reinforcement for the second half of the season. We'll get the best out of him, as we do for every player. He knows where he's coming to."
