Getafe unveil deadline day loan signing of Mason Greenwood with video of fans celebrating his arrival, despite Man United axing the star following a six-month probe into his dropped criminal charges
Supporters had gathered at the club's Coliseum Alfonso Perez stadium waiting for an announcement, and begun jumping and chanting when the news did eventually arrive.
The Spanish club will not be paying a fee for the English forward, but will cover a small contribution for his wages for the duration of the loan.
Greenwood hasn't played competitive football since December 2021, after he was arrested in January 2022 on suspicion of a number of offences including attempted rape.
The 21-year-old was subsequently suspended by the club, however, in February the Crown Prosecution Service subsequently dropped the charges after key witnesses withdrew and new material came to light.

United then concluded their own investigation and judged Greenwood did not commit the offences which he was charged with but decided that his future no longer remained at Old Trafford.
Shortly after signing Greenwood, Getafe posted the video of jubilant fans on social media with the caption 'The Coliseum a few minutes ago.'
They had faced competition for the forward, with the likes of Olympiacos, Red Star Belgrade and Lazio also interested.
Lazio had held extensive talks over signing Greenwood on the final day of the summer transfer window but ran out of time in order to complete a deal with United.
The Italian side's president, Claudio Lotito, claims Greenwood was keen to join the Serie A club but United did not sign the paperwork in time.
‘I tried until the last minute,’ Lotito told La Lazio Siamo Noi shortly after the Italian transfer window closed on Friday evening.
Greenwood joins a club that sits 12th in La Liga after a win, a draw and a loss in their opening three games.
They finished 15th last season but were just two points above the relegation zone in a congested bottom half.
Getafe's next game will be a tough test against Real Madrid, although they will be buoyed by a creditable 0-0 draw against Spanish champions Barcelona last month.
