Spanish side Getafe have swooped to sign Jaja Coelho from Feyenoord.

The forward had been on the books of Feyenoord since 2004, but failed to make the grade and spent much of his time out on loan.

He has impressed for Westerlo over the course of the last 12 months and Getafe came forward with an offer at the start of the transfer window.

Feyenoord gave the green light to the move this week and the Brazilian agreed terms and passed a medical on Thursday.

Getafe have handed the 19-year-old a four-and-a-half-year deal and expect him to flourish in Spain.

The transfer comes as something of a surprise as Feyenoord suggested late last year that they would hand the forward a chance to shine at De Kuip after making such a positive impression in Belgium.
