Highly-rated Real Betis midfielder Dani Ceballos signed a contract extension with the La Liga club.
Real Madrid target Ceballos was set to become a free agent at the end of the season but Betis announced a new deal on Thursday, seeing the 19-year-old remain in Seville until at least 2020.
A buyout clause between €12-15million has reportedly been included in his new contract.
Madrid had been monitoring Ceballos after he played a key role in Spain’s successful Under-19 European Championship campaign in July.
Ceballos has appeared in six of Betis’ seven league fixtures this season, three of those as a starter.
