Swansea’s Jefferson Montero joins Emelec on “sub-loan” from Getafe

Montero scored two goals in 72 appearances for Swansea.

Swansea winger Jefferson Montero has returned to Ecuador on loan with Emelec for the rest of the season.

Montero, 28, joined LaLiga side Getafe on a scheduled season-long loan in September, but is now back in his home country on a “sub-loan” with Emelec, where he will stay until the summer.

“Swansea City winger Jefferson Montero has returned to Ecuador after joining his former club Emelec on a sub-loan for the rest of the season, subject to international clearance,” the Swans said on their official website.

“He remains on Getafe’s books for the rest of the season, but he has now been loaned to Emelec from the La Liga club as the transfer window is open in Ecuador.”

Swansea signed Montero for an undisclosed fee from Mexican side Monarcas Morelia following his appearances for Ecuador in the 2014 World Cup finals.

He signed a four-year deal with the Welsh club and scored two goals in 72 appearances before switching to Getafe, where he made just four substitute appearances.
