Etebo’s deal not 100% closed – bordalas

The Punch - - SPORTS -

Getafe man­ager, Jose Bordalas, has said the deal for the Su­per Ea­gles mid­fielder, Oghenekaro Etebo, is not a done deal, ad­mit­ting there could be last­minute set­backs as they look to com­plete his trans­fer from Stoke City.

Etebo is on the verge of join­ing the Span­ish top-flight side but the man­ager re­mains cau­tious and wants the trans­fer han­dled with care.

Both clubs are re­port­edly in talks over the sign­ing of the Nige­ria in­ter­na­tional on loan un­til the end of the sea­son with an op­tion to make the deal per­ma­nent.

Speak­ing ahead of their Satur­day’s La Liga fix­ture against Real Madrid, where they lost by 3-0 at the Coli­seum Al­fonso Perez Sta­dium, Bordalas con­ceded Etebo’s re­turn to Spain was im­mi­nent but not con­firmed yet.

“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 told the me­dia.
