Atltico de Madrid and Sunderland AFC have completed a deal to sign Atletico Madrid full-back Javier Manquillo. The 22-year-old defender returns to Premier League action after a first stage playing for Liverpool FC back in 2014-15 season.


The right-footed player has represented his country at youth level up to under-21 and has both UEFA Champions League and Europa League experience with Atleti.


Manquillo spent last season on loan with French giants Marseille, gaining further European experience. The agreement is a season-long loan initially, which includes an option for Sunderland to make the move a permanent four-year deal after the completion of the loan.
