London, Aug 25, 2016 (AFP) - Sunderland have signed Spanish defender Javier Manquillo on a season-long loan from Atletico Madrid.

The Premier League club have negotiated an option to sign the 22-year-old full-back on a permanent four-year deal at the end of the current campaign if he impresses Sunderland manager David Moyes.

"Sunderland AFC have completed a deal to sign Atletico Madrid full-back Javier Manquillo," a statement on the club's website confirmed.

Manquillo, who was on loan with French side Marseille last term, is no stranger to the Premier League having spent the 2014-15 season on loan with Liverpool.

Manquillo follows Papy Djilobodji, Adnan Januzaj, Donald Love, Paddy McNair and Steven Pienaar to the Stadium of Light as new boss Moyes rebuilds his squad following Sam Allardyce's move to the England job.
