Real Madrid midfielder Marcos Llorente has signed a new contract with the club that will run to 2021.

The 22-year-old joined the Real academy in 2008 and after spending last season on loan with Alaves has become part of Zinedine Zidane's squad.

He is one of many players to recently commit their futures to Real and spoke of his delight at signing the new deal.

"I am very happy to be able to extend my contract here, it is the club of my life and it has been a dream since I was a child," he said.

He also stressed he was not getting frustrated despite a lack of time on the pitch so far this season.

"I am full of patience, I know how young I am and the level that is so high in this club, but I have a desire to learn and grow."

Llorente has a strong connection to Real, his father Paco and great uncle Francisco Gento were both wingers for the club and his maternal grandfather Ramon Grosso was a forward for Los Blancos.

Reports in Spain have suggested that the next player to renew at Real will be Marco Asensio.
