Asenjo signs new Atletico deal
Madrid, Spain (Sports Network) - Atletico Madrid goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo signed a new contract on Wednesday that ties him to the club until 2016.
The 22-year-old moved to Atletico in 2009 and was viewed as one of the best young goalkeepers in the country. However, he has struggled with injuries over the past few seasons and has fallen behind Thibaut Courtois in the pecking order at Madrid.
Courtois started 37 of Atletico's 38 league games last term, but his loan spell with the club has yet to be extended, making it important to lock up Asenjo, who appeared in five games in all competitions last season.
