MADRID, July 29 (Xinhua) -- Real Madrid have agreed to sell striker Roberto Soldado to Getafe, Getafe President Angel Torres told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old Soldado, who has one Spain cap, only started one game for Real Madrid last season. He had returned to the club following a successful loan spell at Osasuna, where he scored 11 goals in 30 appearances.

Torres said Soldado would sign a four-year deal with Getafe and that he would sign his contract on Wednesday.

Meanwhile Osasuna have announced the signing of former Barcelona striker Santi Ezquerro on a free transfer.
