Amath Ndiaye joins Getafe

Getafe made it two signings in as many days with the arrival of 21-year-old forward Amath Ndiaye from Atlético Madrid yesterday.

Uruguayan midfielder Mauro Arambarri was confirmed as a Getafe player on Wednesday and this was swiftly followed by news of Ndiaye joining the club on Thursday.

Ndiaye is the sixteenth player to sign for the club this summer in what has proved to be a hectic transfer window for the newly-promoted side. No other team in La Liga has signed more players.

Ndiaye spent last season on loan at Tenerife in La Liga 2 where he scored 12 goals and provided 4 assists in 35 league appearances.

Observant Getafe fans may remember that the Senegalese forward featured for Tenerife against Getafe during the play-off final at the end of last season which saw Getafe promoted to La Liga after a 3-2 victory on aggregate.

Getafe sporting director Ramón Planes had stated during the presentation of Arambarri on Wednesday that the club still needed two more players to add speed and quality to the club’s attacking options.

This means that despite the arrival of Ndiaye yesterday, the Madrid-based club are still pursuing at least one more potential arrival before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.
