Tello contract talks advance

Cristian Tello is reportedly much closer than previously planned to penning a new contract at Barcelona.

The pacey winger has enjoyed an extended involvement in the first team in the opening weeks of the season under Tito Vilanova.

With that in mind alongside the fact that his current deal expires next summer, reports in Spain suggest that sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta has come together with the youngster’s agent in recent days to thrash out the final details of a new agreement.

Tello will reportedly sign in the coming weeks a three-year extension to his current contract on improved terms.
