​Getafe's goalkeeper Vicente Guaita has been getting plenty of exposure with his performances this season as speculation continues to grow over his long term future. 


The 30-year-old's contract expires at the end of the current campaign and the Spanish club are keen to secure a fee rather than lose him for nothing over the summer. 

Guillem Balague, Spanish football journalist and regular Sky Sports pundit tweeted: "​Watford think they have convinced Guaita to sign for them as ​Crystal Palace delay their answer. 


"But negotiations continue one of the two might get the goalkeeper for less than the €8m of his buy out clause."

Meanwhile Marca (via ​SportWitness) claim that the stopper skipped training at the weekend as rumours of imminent exit gather pace. 


​​This story is bound to gather momentum during the winter transfer window as it is not only the ​Premier League duo Watford and Crystal Palace accredited with interest in the player - the latter already in talks to bring Guaita to Selhurst Parkbut also Turkish Super Lig side Besiktas are also keen admirers of the stopper. 


The Spaniard, a graduate of Valencia's youth system, is having a tremendous campaign - only conceding 16 goals in 17 ​La Liga games.

Suitors will need to be aware that the 30-year-old is unlikely to go particularly cheaply, but a bargain could be had with 'reasonable' bids expected to entice Getafe to sell their experienced campaigner.
