The Portuguese club have confirmed that the striker, who scored 92 goals during his stay, will depart after Atletico agreed to pay his £24.8 million release clause
Porto have confirmed Atletico Madrid have agreed to pay Jackson Martinez's €35 million (£24.8m) release clause.

The player's agent revealed last week that the 28-year-old would move to the Vicente Calderon after rejecting the chance to join AC Milan.

A statement on Porto's website said: "Atletico Madrid agreed on Tuesday to pay Jackson Martinez's release clause to the sum of €35 million."

The Colombia striker has spent three seasons with Porto and played 136 official matches, scoring 92 goals.

He was the top scorer in the Portuguese league in those three campaigns, with 26 goals in 2012/13, 20 in 2013/14 and 21 in 2014/15.
