Ebert: I’m ready for next step

Patrick Ebert has indicated that he is ready to leave Real Valladolid this summer, but that Atletico Madrid face competition for his signature.

The German attacking midfielder has enjoyed a prominent debut season in La Liga and has subsequently been linked with a move this summer.

Despite having been caught in March discussing such a possibility with Atletico Madrid, the 26-year-old has indicated that the capital club are not his only option.

“I’m ready to take the next step,” Ebert told Kicker magazine this week.

“There is a clear agreement, the club will not produce any obstacles if certain conditions are met.

“Where? Honestly, the Bundesliga turns me off. In Spain I have found happiness.

“Real Valladolid has given me the opportunity to play a great season, they have been a godsend. I will not generate any controversy to try and leave.

“Atletico? They are a very attractive club that will be playing in the Champions League, but they are not the only option that I have, I have also had offers from England.”

It is understood that Tottenham Hotspur are following the player.
