Transfer Outs, And An In

Eugen Polanski has gone on loan to Mainz back in his native Germany, while Miguel Pallardo is back at Levante on yet another loan deal.

Both of these moves are great for all parties. Polanski isn't good enough for Getafe and Pallardo seems to be well settled back home in Valencia.

We're also losing Jacobo back to Valladolid and Stojkovic back to Sporting Lisbon, but, er, today comes the 'great' news of the arrival of Jordi Codina from Real Madrid.

I have never been impressed by Codina on the few occasions that I've seen him, and for those calling up the Diego Lopez comparisons, let's remember that Lopez left Madrid for something like €6m. Codina comes to Getafe for free.

Hopefully he'll be second choice to Osky...

Mané Signs For Getafe

In a surprise - but extremely welcome - move, Mané has signed for Getafe on a four-year deal.

The 28-year-old left back arrives from Almería after three successful seasons on the south coast. Previously he served Ciudad Murcia, Atlético Madrid B, Díter Zafra, and Linense, his first club, just a few miles from his hometown of Tarifa.

An excellent arrival and one that fixes a problem position for us!

Michel Signs Two-Year Deal With Getafe

Michel has been appointed manager on a full-time basis, signing a two-year deal with Getafe CF SAD this morning.

Great news, as far as I'm concerned - he's shown so far that he has what it takes.

Now we just need to get the summer market right...
