Getafe have secured defender Cata Diaz to a new contract.

An official Getafe statement read yesterday:

"Cata Diaz has extended his contract with Getafe CF until June 30, 2013. The player has signed his contract extension and thus maintains his link with the club."

The 31-year-old Argentinian appeared 30 times for Getafe this season, who were keen to extend his deal after months of speculation linking him with a move away from the club.
