Palace move for Getafe stopper

Getafe goalkeeper Vicente Guaita is reportedly closing in on a move to Premier League side Crystal Palace.

The 31-year-old was a target for the Londoners in the January transfer window only for the move to break down due to complications.

However, Palace boss Roy Hodgson revealed in February that the Spaniard would be joining him at Selhurst Park from July 1 on a free transfer.

Guaita moved to the Madrid club in July 2014 from Valencia, where he made 106 La Liga appearances, and Getafe boss Jose Bordalas is believed to have already lined up several options to replace him, including Alaves’ Fernando Pacheco and Antonio Adan from Real Betis.
