Getafe to sign Jack Harper from Malaga

Getafe are set to confirm the signing of Scottish forward Jack Harper from second tier Malaga, according to a report in Marca.

Harper, who was born in Malaga to Scottish parents, has spent the majority of his football career in the Spanish capital and was on Real Madrid’s books for six years.

It is said by the report that Los Azulones are prepared to part with €1.5m to land the forward, who will sign a long-term five-year contract at the Coliseum.

Harper, who also recently spent two years in the youth system at Brighton and Hove Albion in England, netted four goals in 26 appearances for Malaga last campaign.

His outings helped the Andalusian club into the promotion playoffs but they fell at the semi-final stage against Deportivo La Coruna.

Harper, 23, will be Getafe’s first summer signing and he is set to compete in the forthcoming Europa League campaign for the club.
