Getafe have completed the signing of Sebastian Cristoforo from Italian club Fiorentina, according to Football Italia.

The Uruguay international has moved to the Spanish capital on a season-long loan move from Fiorentina. Cristoforo made the move on deadline day for La Liga and it’s reported he’ll have an option to buy included.

The 25-year-old joined Fiorentina from Sevilla in 2016 for €3m, but only made 34 competitive appearances for the club over two seasons.

Due to a lack of appearance for the Viola, Cristoforo was omitted from Oscar Tabarez’s final 23man squad that represented Uruguay at the just concluded FIFA World Cup in Russia.

The two-time World Cup winners were drawn in group A with hosts Russia, Egypt and middle-east side Saudi Arabia, and won the group with nine points recording wins against all three teams.

They were eliminated by eventual winners France in the quarterfinals but not before sending out Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal in the second-round.

Cristoforo only contributed a disappointing tally of one goal and two assists in a in his two-year spell with Fiorentina.
