Goalkeeper Miguel Ángel Moyá is to remain an Atlético Madrid player next season after signing a one-year extension to his deal at the LaLiga club.

Following several months of talks, Atlético confirmed on Wednesday that Moyá, who was out of contract in June, is to stay at the outfit for a fourth year.

Since joining from Getafe in 2014, he has made 60 Atleti appearances in all competitions, winning the Spanish Super Cup in his first term at Los Rojiblancos.

The 32-year-old is understudy to regular keeper Jan Oblak, filling in ably for the Slovenian during his extended period out with a shoulder injury earlier this season.

And Moyá's good performances in Oblak's absence - conceding 17 goals in 18 games - have helped bring contract negotiations to a positive conclusion.

Torres, Tiago still out of contract in the summer

Moyá's 12-month deal, which is line with the club's policy for players aged 32 and over, leaves Fernando Torres and Tiago Mendes as the only members of Diego Simeone's squad whose contracts are due to expire at the end of 2016/17.
