Pedro Leon jumps to Eibar

Pedro Leon has left Getafe and signed for Eibar, agreeing a two-year contract with Los Armeros.

Leon spent six years with El Geta and in a message on his Twitter account spoke of his ‘tremendous pride’ in the club, and his disappointment that he and his now-former teammates ‘failed miserably’ in avoiding relegation last season.

“I have tried to give everything of myself in these colours to make you as proud as I am of this club. I would like to have said goodbye in other circumstances,” Leon’s statement added.

Getafe confirmed Leon’s exit on Tuesday evening and shortly after Eibar announced they had picked up the 29-year-old, who worked with Eibar Coach Jose Luis Mendilibar when both were at Real Valladolid.
