The 25-year-old helped Diego Simeone's side to a second-place finish in La Liga last season and they won the Europa League.

Although he has sometimes been overlooked by Simeone this term, Partey continues to be a leading light for his nation.

He captained Ghana in friendlies against Japan and Iceland in the summer and has become the driving attacking force in the team.
