Atletico Madrid have agreed a deal to sign teenage defender Jose Mar?a Gimenez from Uruguayan club Danubio.

The 18-year-old centre-back passed his medical with Atletico on Wednesday before signing a five-year contact with the Spanish club, the Rojiblancos announced on their official website.

Atletico sporting director Jose Luis Perez Caminero described Gimenez, who has been called up to the Uruguay Under-20 side, as a "natural talent, a fast defender who uses the ball well, a good marker and classy on the ball."
