Vitolo to go to Las Palmas until end of Atlético's FIFA ban
In a statement on their website, Atlético confirmed that the Spain cap will play for UD Las Palmas until the Madrid club's FIFA registration ban is lifted in January.
Las Palmas, Vitolo's hometown team, have also announced the interim arrangement, which sees him initially return to the club where he began his career.
Having come through the Canary Islanders' youth ranks, the 27-year-old made 90 first-team appearances for Los Amarillos before joining Sevilla in 2013.
After flying to Madrid on Tuesday, Vitolo underwent a medical with Atleti on Wednesday morning before activating his Sevilla release clause at LaLiga's offices.
