Getafe have completed the loan signing of Nigerian international Oghenekaro Etebo from Stoke City. Reports however claim he is facing a delay in his acquisition of an entry visa from Spain’s embassy in London for him to complete the deal that will enable him play on loan at Getafe until the end of this season.
The Spanish side are holding up an option to turn it into a full transfer. It marks another tentative steps towards the realization of Etebo’s new deal, as Getafe had earlier hinted that the agreement will not be made official until the Super Eagles’ star passes a medical on arrival at their base, where he is expected spend the remainder of the campaign.
Etebo joined Stoke from Feirense in the summer of 2018 for a fee of £6.3million and has played in 51 matches, scoring twice.
The Warri born midfielder who was a revelation at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, where experts believed he would have got a better club deal elsewhere, had he not signed for Stoke before joining the Eagles’ camp, has not starred for the English Championship side since October 22, when he played for only 21 minutes against Sheffield Wednesday.
He will now aim to make the best of his return to to La Liga, having previously also spent time on loan from Feirense at Las Palmas during the second half of the 2017/18 season, before making the move to Stoke, where he ended up playing 51 matches and scored two goals.
