Guaita set for Palace move

Getafe goalkeeper Vicente Guaita will join Crystal Palace after reaching an agreement with his current club overa deal, say reports.

The Premier League side had been offering €4m but the shot-stopper’s release clause at the Madrid-based club stands at €8m, and Cadena Cope now report the player has reached a private agreement with the club to settle the remaining demand.

The 30-year-old has been out of the Madrid-based club’s side in recent weeks due to being unsettled by a previous failure by the parties involved to conclude a deal.

Marca reported on Wednesday he has already undergone his medical at Selhurst Park and that a deal is expected to be confirmed imminently.

Reports across the Spanish press earlier this month had suggested Getafe rejected a €4m offer from Roy Hodgson’s side, who are keen on an upgrade to current goalkeeper Wayne Hennessy and Julian Speroni.

Guaita – who is out of contract at the end of the season – had started 17 La Liga matches this season for Getafe and has kept six clean sheets, including in all four of his most recent games.
