Fernando Torres signs one-year contract extension at Atletico Madrid 

Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres has ended speculation about his future by signing a one-year contract extension, the La Liga club have announced.

The 33-year-old, recently linked with a move away from Spain, will now remain at Atletico until June 2018.

Torres is currently in his second spell with his boyhood club, who are under a transfer ban that restricts them from registering new players until the New Year, following spells away with Liverpool, Chelsea and AC Milan.

The former Spain striker has scored 28 goals since returning to the Vicente Calderon but has fallen down the pecking order behind Antoine Griezmann and Kevin Gameiro under Diego Simeone.

In a brief statement on Atletico’s official website, Torres said: “I am very happy to continue one more year together.”
