Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann has signed a new deal with the Champions League finalists, keeping him at the club until 2021.

The 25-year-old is currently playing with France at Euro 2016 and scored for Les Bleus in the 2-0 win over Albania.

Griezmann, who scored 32 goals in 54 appearances last season, has been linked with a move away from Madrid, including to the Premier League.

Last week Atletico agreed to sign striker Nicolas Gaitan from Benfica.

Griezmann told the club website: "I'm very satisfied, very happy to keep belonging to this family and this project.

"I want to improve every year, and the club, the coaches and my team-mates can help me to reach this goal."
