Ghana international Thomas Partey has earned a contract extension with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid.
The new deal keeps the defensive midfielder at the club until 2022, the club announced on Valentine’s Day.
Partey, 23, after joining Atletico as a youth player in 2011, broke into coach Diego Simeone’s first team squad last season.
Following the announcement, Partey said: “I am very happy with my new contract and grateful for the faith shown in me.
“I have always been very fond of this club and I want to keep on developing at Atletico. I will give everything for this club.”
Partey, who has made 31 appearances for Atletico in total, was also a member of the Ghana squad that finished fourth at this year’s African Nations Cup.
