Atletico Madrid have reportedly agreed to loan striker Ibrahima Balde to Segunda Division outfit Albacete.
According to Marca, los Colchoneros general manager Miguel Angel Gil Marin met with Albacete representative Rafael Candel and reached an agreement to allow the 19-year-old Senegalese forward.
Ibrahima has scored three times in 18 Primera Liga appearances since making his debut in January and despite signing a contract extension which will keep him at the Vicente Calderon until 2013, he appears to be surplus to requirements for the forthcoming season.
The loan deal has yet to be finalised as Ibrahima has not yet agreed to make the switch but could becomer official within the coming days.
