Wakaso to join Getafe from Alaves

Getafe are close to completing the signing of midfielder Mubarak Wakaso from Alaves, according to reports in the Spanish press.

The 27-year-old has played in 12 La Liga games this season for the Basque club but a report from Cope journalist Gemma Santos states a deal is expected to be done today.

The Madrid-based club would be the Ghanaian international’s seventh Spanish sides following stints with Elche, Villarreal, Las Palmas, Espanyol and Granada.

Known for his combative playing style, Wakaso – who has also played for Rubin Kazan, Celtic and Panathinaikos - featured in Alaves’s narrow defeat at the Camp Nou on Sunday.
