SEGUNDA DIVISIÓN | ELCHE
Javi Noblejas joins Elche until June 2018
The 22-year-old left-back, a Real Madrid youth team product, signs from Getafe. He is due to train with his new club on Monday.
Elche announced the first reinforcement of the winter window in a club statement this morning. The club confirmed that they have signed defender Javi Noblejas who joins until June 2018. The 22-year-old left-back arrives from Getafe but was groomed in Real Madrid’s youth academy. Noblejas is expected to join the squad for the first training session after the Christmas break on Monday afternoon. He will undergo a medical in the morning then be officially unveiled. He will be unable to take part in Getafe’s home meeting with Deportivo on 30th as he will only be registered with the Federation on 4 January.
Noblejas has spent the season alternating between Getafe’s first team and the reserves; he has only made one top flight appearance – in the 3-0 win over Levante in Week 6, and four appearances with Getafe B. Noblejas has been brought in to increase competition for the left-back position where Rubén Baraja only has Álex Martínez.
