Getafe complete deadline day deal for Montero

Before the close of the transfer window Getafe completed their final signing of the summer with the arrival of Ecuadorian winger Jefferson Montero on loan from Swansea City.

Getafe have had an extremely busy transfer window and were the most prolific club in La Liga with Montero becoming the eighteenth player to join the newly-promoted side.

Getafe sporting director Ramón Planes had stated a few weeks ago that the club needed to bring in two more players to add speed and quality to the club’s attacking options.

The very next day the Madrid-based club followed this statement by completing a move for Senegalese forward Amath Ndiaye from Atletico Madrid. This still left one more attacking signing and although Getafe left it late Montero is the final piece that Planes had wanted to add to the squad.

Montero is no stranger to Spain having spent two seasons in La Liga from 2010 to 2012. He made just nine appearances for former parent club Villareal and had two loan spells, the first at Levante and the second at Real Betis, where he made the majority of his 51 La Liga appearances.

Montero is also experienced at international level with 63 caps and 10 goals for Ecuador over the course of almost ten years.
