Montero joins Getafe from Swansea City


Jefferson Montero has joined Getafe from Swansea City on a season-long loan deal.

The Ecuador international signed a new contract at the Premier League club last September but then struggled for game-time in an injury-hit campaign.

After the January appointment of Paul Clement, Montero recorded a mere 32 minutes on the pitch and he has subsequently been allowed to go out on loan.

Joining Getafe represents a return to LaLiga for the winger, who has previously had spells with Villarreal, Levante and Real Betis.

The move to Getafe for Montero – who celebrated his 28th birthday on Friday – is subject to international clearance.
