Musampa signs contract with Atletico
MADRID, June 5 (Reuters) - Malaga midfielder Kizito Musampa will join Atletico Madrid at the end of the season after signing a five-year deal with the Spanish first division club.
Atletico did not release the financial details, but Spanish media reported that they had paid a fee of around £2million for the 25-year-old former Ajax player.
'I was really keen to come to Atletico,' Musampa told the Atletico website. 'I have always wanted to play for one of the top clubs.'
Musampa, who was born in Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo but has a Dutch passport, began his professional career at Ajax and had a short spell at Girondins Bordeaux before moving to Malaga in 1999.
He has been in impressive form this season and played a major part in helping the Andalucian club to reach the quarter-finals of the UEFA Cup.
