Getafe Boss Bordalas Still Cautious Over Etebo’s Transfer

Getafe manager Jose Bordalas says the deal to bring Nigerian midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo on loan to the club from Sky Bet Championship side Stoke City is not 100 percent closed, reports Completesports.com.

Etebo, 24, who has struggled for regular playing time recently at Stoke City is set to link up with the Spanish club on a six-month deal for the remainder of the campaign with a purchase option.

“The arrival of Etebo is not 100% closed. There can always be last minute setbacks and that is why I prefer to be cautious,” Bordalas stated during his interaction with the media ahead of Saturday’s (today) LaLiga home clash against Real Madrid.

The powerful midfielder was a prominent member of The Potters squad under former manager Nathan Jones, but fell out of favour when Micheal O’Neil took charge in November.

He has not played for Stoke City since limping out of a defeat at Sheffield Wednesday in October.
Etebo has featured in 11 league games for Stoke City this season.

The former Warri Wolves player who joined Stoke City from Portuguese club, CD Fierense for £6.3m in the summer of 2018 previously spent time on loan at Spanish outfit Las Palmas.

    The sweet thing about this deal is that it has an option of purchase when the loan ends…and that to me is quite fantastic, because Etebo is the type of player any coach would love to have in his team. The lad gets the job done. I have no doubt Getafe would want to keep him – if Stoke doesn’t try to prove stubborn. And by the way, playing for Getafe in the Spanish laliga is what fits a player of Etebo’s calibre…not some relegation haunted 2nd division club. His transfer to Stoke was a horrible choice in the first instance.
