Medhi Lacen has left Racing Santander and completed a move to Primera Liga rivals Getafe.

The midfielder has penned a four-year contract with the Madrid-based outfit.

He is set to take on a new challenge after spending the last three years with Racing.

Meanwhile, conflicting reports are emanating out of Spain regarding the future of Getafe's Derek Boateng.

The Ghana international was expected to be on his way to Ukrainian outfit Dnipro after a fee was agreed for his services.

There is, however, confusion as to whether he will make the move or not, with some reports suggesting he has snubbed a switch.

West Brom have been strongly linked with the African ace and would be able to offer him Premier League football.
