    Mason Greenwood has been named in Getafe's 21-man matchday squad for their La Liga contest against Osasuna.

    The Manchester United loanee is all set to make his debut for the club on Sunday after receiving a very warm welcome from fans. The 21-year-old has cheered during his unveiling and during an open training session seven months after all charges against him were dropped.

    Greenwood, who had initially been charged for attempted rape, controlling and coercive behaviour and assault occasioning actual bodily harm which he denied, joined the La Liga outfit after United's U-turn over keeping him in the Premier League.

    Getafe named their squad for the fixture on Saturday afternoon with Greenwood expected to play some part.

    Should the former England international get on the pitch, it will be his first professional appearance since January of 2022, working out to 603 days.

    Greenwood tried to keep his fitness levels up during his United suspension by training on his own before his summer move to Spain was confirmed.

    It was spotted earlier in the summer that Greenwood was wearing seven-year old Nike boots during training after they dropped him as a client.

    His official unveiling was packed with fans of the Madrid club with one homemade sign asking for his shirt – which he was happy to sort.

    Manager Jose Bordalas has said of the signing: "It is too delicate a situation to trivialise this issue. Everybody knows what happened, the appropriate measures were taken.

    "Obviously we can only talk about football, about other issues, I think, that the people and the relevant systems did what they had to do, and everybody knows how it ended – without a condemnatory sentence.

    "He's a footballer of the highest level, who comes to Getafe with enormous hope. We are going to help him to recover his best level."
