Mason Greenwood says he “can’t wait to get started” at Getafe after being unveiled by the Spanish club in the wake of his controversial loan move from Manchester United.

The 21-year-old striker is due to be officially presented to Getafe fans along with the club’s other summer signings on Tuesday afternoon.

But Getafe released a video of Greenwood on Monday night in which the forward expressed his eagerness to play for the club.

“Hi Getafe fans, it’s Mason here. I’m so happy to be here and I can’t wait to get started,” said Greenwood, before giving a thumbs up to the camera.

Greenwood, who also posed for images holding up a Getafe shirt while stood next to a giant club emblem, will wear the No. 12 shirt.

United are thought to be paying at least £50,000 of Greenwood’s £75,000 a week wages. Getafe have a January break clause in their loan agreement although that is not uncommon.

Getafe coach José Bordalás said at the weekend that the club would strive to help Greenwood get “back to his best level” and that the striker had “huge enthusiasm” to resurrect his career in Spain.

But Bordalas did admit the controversy around the player was “too delicate a subject to treat lightly”.

Greenwood has not played competitive football since his arrest in January last year led to his suspension by United.

In February, charges of attempted rape, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and controlling and coercive behaviour against Greenwood were dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service after key witnesses withdrew and new material came to light. Greenwood has denied all charges against him.

United launched an internal investigation and had been planning to bring Greenwood back until a fierce public and internal backlash forced a rethink and it was announced last month that the player would be leaving Old Trafford.
