Atletico Madrid confirm Vitolo agreement

Atletico Madrid confirm Vitolo agreement”

The FIFA transfer ban has been a severe blow for Atletico Madrid who cannot bolster their ranks with new players until 2018.

However, a last-ditch offer from Atlético persuaded the player - who had not yet signed his fresh Sevilla terms - to move to the Spanish capital, via Las Palmas.

He predominantly plays as a left-sided player, cutting in on his right foot, but is versatile and can occupy a variety of roles.

Despite the Las Palmas sporting director last week saying the deal would take place, Vitolo agreed to sign a contract extension with Sevilla, which their president Jose Castro announced on Monday.

The wording of the Atletico statement is as follows: "Atletico Madrid has reached an agreement with Víctor Machín Pérez, Vitolo, for the next five years after the footballer rescinded his contract with Sevilla Fútbol Club".

Because of the FIFA ban on Atletico registering new players until January 2018, the club have confirmed the 11-time Spain international will spend the first months of the 2017-18 season on loan at Las Palmas, which is where he began his career. "It's a dream to play in LaLiga with the club of my life".

Vitolo, who has been capped 11 times for Spain, scored 27 goals in 171 appearances during a four-year stay in Seville, helping the club to three consecutive Europa League crowns during that time.
