Jese Rodriguez signs new four-year deal


Real Madrid forward Jese Rodriguez has signed a new four-year deal at the club, putting an end to speculation he may leave.

The deal, which runs until 2017, sees the 20-year-old double his wages to around 1.2 million euros a year.

Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur had been interested in the striker, who scored 22 goals for Madrid’s second-string side last term but will now need to look elsewhere to sign a forward.

Shortly after the contract renewal was announced by the club, Jese took to Twitter to express his delight.

He said: “Very happy to have renewed my contract and to play for the best team in the world. I will give everything for this badge.”

The player has been with Los Blancos since the age of 14 and has worked his way up the ranks. He played an important part of the Spain Under-20 side at the under-20 World Cup, and helped them to the semi-final stage.
