Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke has signed a new seven-year contract that will see him remain at the club until the summer of 2024.
The Spain international has spent his entire career to date with Los Rojiblancos, helping the club to the La Liga title in 2014, while he has also featured in two Champions League finals.
The 25-year-old’s previous deal had been due to expire in two years, but he has now committed his long-term future to the club by signing a contract that will take him beyond his 32nd birthday.
Atleti’s sporting director Jose Luis Perez Caminero confirmed the news of Koke’s contract extension on the club’s official website.
“It is exceptional news for all Rojiblancos,” Caminero said. “Koke embodies what it means to be Atleti.
He is one of the leaders of the team and has been raised from a very young age with the values from our academy.
“Knowing he will continue with us for many years is great news. Despite his young age, he has already got a lot of experience and is an example for all children coming through the academy.”
Koke has won five major honours during his time with Atleti and will be hoping to help the club to further success next season, particularly as it will be their first campaign at their new Wanda Metropolitano stadium.
