Almería take Thomas on loan from Atlético Madrid
Almería have announced the arrival of Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey, who joins on loan for the 2014-2015 season from Atlético Madrid.
In what is now their ninth signing of the summer transfer window, Almería have officially announced the capture of 21-year-old midfielder Thomas Teye Partey, on loan from Atlético Madrid for the upcoming season in La Liga.
Almería had been in somewhat lengthy discussions about securing the services of the player, during the last few weeks, but have now finally secured his move.
The club had also been hoping to complete one or two more signings over the weekend, ahead of their trip to Thailand, as part of the LFP World Challenge Tour. As they set off from Barajas airport in Madrid later on Sunday, the Ghanaian player will link up with the Almería squad, as they fly to the Asian country.
Primarily a defensive midfielder, Thomas impressed the coaching staff at Atlético Madrid following his arrival and powerful performances with their B team. Last season to aid his development, he was loaned to Segunda side Mallorca, where he made 37 appearances and scored 5 goals.
