Sevilla president Jose Maria Del Nido has confirmed striker Kepa Blanco's move to Getafe.

The 23-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at West Ham, managing one goal, but returned to Sevilla when the campaign came to a close.

However, finding himself behind the likes of Luis Fabiano, Fredi Kanoute, Alexander Kerzhakov and Javier Chevanton at Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan, he has now decided to move on again.

He has agreed a four-year contract with Getafe, although Sevilla have inserted a buy-back clause into the deal which allows them to re-sign him for a fee of ?3.5 million (£2million) at the end of either of the next two seasons.

A Spain Under 21 international, Blanco is highly-rated in Spain and is likely to partner Dani Guiza up front for Getafe next term.
