Cristian Tello poised to sign new Barcelona deal

The young attacker has caught the attention of a number of foreign teams, but he is expected to pen a contract extension at Camp Nou.
Cristian Tello has revealed that his agent is in advanced talks with Barcelona over a new and improved contract.

The versatile attacker's current deal is due to expire next summer, and Tello has reportedly attracted the interest of a number of foreign clubs. Nevertheless, a transfer away from Camp Nou does not seem to be an option for the winger, with a contract extension on the horizon.

"The contract renewal is going well. Barca are in talks with my agent, and I hope it's a done deal soon," Tello was quoted as saying by Marca.

The 21-year-old attacker came through the ranks of the Barcelona youth academy, and he made his official first team debut in November, 2011. He has since developed into an integral first team member at the Catalan giants, and he played a big role in the club's UEFA Champions League win over Spartak Moscow Wednesday with a goal and an assist.
