Kepa Blanco is to sign for Getafe CF after Sevilla FC accepted a €3.5m bid from the Madrid-based side for the 23-year-old striker.

Buy-back option
Kepa spent the second half of last season on loan at West Ham United FC where his only goal for the English club in eight appearances came 70 seconds into his debut against Liverpool FC. The former Spanish Under-21 international was an unused substitute in Sevilla's 2006 UEFA Cup final triumph against Middlesbrough FC, and Sevilla will retain a buy-back option on Kepa for the next two years.
