Spanish side Granada FC want Thomas Teye Partey on loan if he is deemed out of Atletico Madrid’s immediate plans for the coming season.

The Ghanaian midfielder has returned to the dethroned La Liga champions after a successful loan spell at relegated Almeria in the past season.

He scored four goals in 31 La Liga games and has been given a chance by manager Diego Simeone to stake his claim for a role with the first team whose midfield rotates around the already established Koke, Gabi, Tiago and Mario Suarez.

Granada are known admirers of the 21-year-old defensive midfielder they failed to land on loan last season.

Club president Quique Pina and sporting director Juan Carlos Cordero are reported to be making numerous attempts to land quality players to help the team maintain their top flight status having survived a relegation scare last season and are looking to secure a loan deal for the youngster when the door opens.
