Anderlecht prodigy Tielemans agrees to contract extension

Reported Atletico Madrid target Youri Tielemans has agreed a new deal with Anderlecht.

Youri Tielemans has ended speculation over his future by signing a new five-year contract with Anderlecht.

The 18-year-old Belgium youth international was heavily linked with Spanish champion Atletico Madrid, having become a key player for the club since making his debut at the age of 16.

A host of other European clubs were reported to be interested in the teenager, but Tielemans has committed his immediate future to the Belgian champion.

Tielemans has made 35 appearances and scored six goals in the Jupiler Pro League this season.
