Atletico Madrid striker Fernando Torres has signed a new contract.

The Spain international has agreed to stay for another season after his previous deal expired last week.

The 32-year-old former Liverpool and Chelsea player returned to Atletico, with whom he began his professional career, from AC Milan in 2015.

He scored 12 goals in 44 games last season for Atletico, who were beaten in the Champions League final by Real Madrid and finished third in La Liga.

His strike partner, France international Antoine Griezmann, signed a new deal last week.
