Getafe manager Jose Bordalas has said that he is "convinced" his side will successfully fend off interest from Crystal Palace for goalkeeper Vicente Guaita.
The Eagles' search for a new number one has seen them turn to the 31-year-old, who is understood to have already undergone a successful medical at Selhurst Park.
Palace have the option of signing Guaita on a pre-contract agreement, with his current terms at Getafe due to expire in the summer, but a report in the British press this week claimed that the Premier League club would rather pay a £3.5m transfer fee to get a deal complete.
Bordalas reckons that the ex-Valencia stopper is going nowhere for now, though, telling reporters at his weekly press conference: "I think he will stay, I am convinced about that.
"I have spoken to my president about it. He has now recovered from injury and has trained with his teammates and I think I can include him in our next game."
Guaita, also linked with Watford earlier in the transfer window, has kept five clean sheets in 18 matches this season.body check tags ::
