Getafe looking at José Angel option

Spanish outfit Getafe are weighing up the option of taking Roma full-back José Angel on loan for the remainder of the season.

The former Spanish under-21 international has spent the first part of the current season on loan at Real Sociedad; however has struggled to break into the first team under Philippe Montanier.

Getafe would be a favourable move for the 23-year-old, as it should offer him more playing time.

José Angel has only featured on eight occasions this season, and only once as a starter, in a 2-1 defeat away to Levante.

The Sporting Gijón youth product was brought to Rome for €4.5 million, by request by former coach Luis Enrique. However he failed to impress in his only year in the Italian capital.

Now out of the plans of current Roma coach, Zdenek Zeman, he was loaned out to Real Sociedad for the year, with hopes he would join the Spanish outfit permanently at the end of the year.

This does not seem likely at present however, due to his lack of playing time; so a move to Getafe looks like a favourable option to all parties involved.
