Ciprian Marica: Romania striker has sealed move to Getafe

The 27-year-old striker was released by Schalke in the summer and attracted interest from Inter Milan, Lazio and his former club Shakhtar Donetsk, while English trio Arsenal, Tottenham and West Ham were also thought to have been interested.

But Primera Liga club Getafe have won the race for the player's signature, confirming he had signed a contract on undisclosed terms with a statement on their official website.

Marica is best known for his six years in the Bundesliga with both Schalke and Stuttgart - whom he joined from Shakhtar in 2007 - and has represented Romania 64 times, scoring 22 goals.

Getafe are currently ninth in La Liga having won two of their six opening games.
