Atletico Madrid have agreed to sign Ghana midfielder Bernard Mensah from Portuguese side Vitoria Guimaraes and will send him on loan for one season to La Liga rivals Getafe.
"The Ghanaian player has signed with our club for six seasons," Atletico said on their official website. "He will play the first of those on loan with Getafe."
Vitoria and Getafe also confirmed the deal for the 20-year-old, who operates as an attacking midfielder and can also play wide on the left.
Mensah, who netted five times in 30 appearances for Vitoria, made his Ghana debut in June against Togo, where he scored the only goal in a 1-0 win.
The Ghanaian has become the fifth signing of the summer for Atletico following the arrivals of Jackson Martinez, Luciano Vietto, Yannick Ferreira Carrasco and Stefan Savic.
