Juan Albin insists he will not decide on his future until the end of the season, amid speculation he has agreed a deal with Newcastle.
The 23-year-old Uruguayan forward has been with Getafe since 2006, after moving from Nacional.
Newcastle are understood to have been keeping tabs on Albin for a number of months, as they look to plan for life back in the Premier League.
Now Spanish sources claim that Newcastle have offered Albin a three-year deal to move to St James' Park on a Bosman transfer in the summer.
Getafe have offered Albin fresh terms in a bid to stop him leaving for free, but it now seems he is set to leave the Madrid-based outfit.
Speaking about Newcastle's potential interest, Albin insisted he was focused on trying to win a place in Uruguay's World Cup squad.
"This year is very important to me," he said.
"I attend to announce what my future is at the end of the season.
"Like any professional, I don't reject any offer - and Newcastle are an historical club that will return to the Premier League.
"But I will keep calm and study them."
