Albin said: "Besides that I am still in a contract at Getafe for one more year, I want to stay at this team, so the conversations for extending the deal have begun.
"For the moment there are conversations and negotiations, nothing has been signed yet but I am calm because I am still in the contract for one more year.
"There has been an important advance in the negotiations. I expect to continue at Getafe for many more years, and for what I have heard, the president also wants me to continue at the club.
"Now I am currently getting recovered from an injury and I expect to be very fit.
"I have to grow much more and this year could be the one. I hope to have many more minutes for playing and to have an important season."
