We have undertaken a study of stellar activity and kinematics for this star over the past few years. Previous results show a high level of stellar activity, with the presence of prominence-like structures, spots on the surface, and strong flare events, despite the moderate rotational velocity of the star. In addition, radial velocity variations with a semi-amplitude of up to 1km/s were detected. We investigate the nature of these radial velocity variations, in order to determine whether they are due to stellar activity or the reflex motion of the star induced by a companion. Description: This paper reports the discovery of a planetary companion for the young and active K5V star BD+20 1790. The fit of the RV data yields a solution for a close-in massive planet with an orbital period of 7.78days. The radial velocity data listed here are not part of a planetary search programme.
