Sergio Reguilon joins Atletico Madrid on loan from Tottenham Hotspur

Sergio Reguilon joins Atletico Madrid on loan from Tottenham Hotspur

Atletico Madrid have completed the signing of Tottenham Hotspur left-back Sergio Reguilon on a season-long loan deal.

The former Real Madrid man will now spend the 2022-23 campaign at the Wanda Metropolitano, and there is believed to be no option to buy included in the deal.

Reguilon, 25, leaves Spurs on a temporary basis after falling down the pecking order under Antonio Conte, with both Ivan Perisic and Ryan Sessegnon preferred in the left wing-back role.

The Spain international becomes Atletico’s fourth signings of the summer window after the arrivals of Axel Witsel, Nahuel Molina and Samuel Lino.

Diego Simeone‘s side has moved for Reguilon after allowing Renan Lodi to join Nottingham Forest on loan for the 2022-23 season.

Speaking to Atletico’s official website on his arrival at the club, Reguilon said: “For me its’s a really happy moment. I’m really looking forward to seeing my new teammates, getting to know the group and starting the whole routine.

“I always say, when I talk to people, that the squad Atleti has is to fight for all the titles with players of a very high level and who are playing in their national teams, and I think we can have a great year because we have players in the squad to fight for everything.

“I can bring a lot of energy, I’m a very competitive person, a great team player and above all I can bring the experience I have and make it available to the team. Overall I’m here to add as much as the coach wants me to.”

Born in Madrid, Reguilon began his youth career with Atletico’s city rivals Real and eventually made 22 senior appearances for Los Blancos before joining Sevilla on loan in 2019.

An impressive spell with Los Rojiblancos caught the eye of Tottenham, who bought the left-back from Real Madrid in the summer of 2020 for around £27m.

Across the last two seasons, Reguilon has played 67 times for Spurs across all tournaments, including 31 appearances during the 2021-22 campaign.

Reguilon, who was not involved in any of Tottenham’s opening four games of the new season, will now be hoping to gain regular first-team football under Simeone, as he aims to receive a call-up by the Spanish national team for the World Cup later this year.

The left-back could make his debut for Atletico when they face Real Sociedad away from home in La Liga on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Spurs have also announced that midfielder Harry Winks has left the club to join Serie A outfit Sampdoria on a season-long loan deal.

In addition, the North London club have confirmed the permanent signing of defender Cristian Romero from Atalanta BC on a five-year deal, believed to be worth around £41m.
