Jese: Has put pen to paper on a new four-deal with Real Madrid

The 20-year-old's current deal with Los Blancos was due to expire next June - sparking reports of interest from Tottenham Hotspur - but the new agreement commits him to Real until 2017.

Just moments after it was confirmed on the club's official website, the player declared his delight at the news with a message on Twitter.

He said: "Very happy to have renewed my contract and to play for the best team in the world. I will give everything for this badge."

Jese, born in the Canary Islands, joined Real Madrid's academy aged 14.

He helped the club to promotion to the Segunda Division A, Spain's second tier, in 2011-12 and finished top scorer in the division last season, with 22 goals.

He has just played just once for the first team, in a Copa del Rey tie with Ponferradina in December 2011, but has been promoted to the first team for the coming season.

Jese, who can play on either wing, as a centre-forward or behind the striker, has represented Spain at under-19 and under-20 level.

He was part of the under-19 side which won the 2012 European Championships in Estonia and finished top scorer in the tournament. He hit five goals at this summer's under-20 World Cup in Turkey, where Spain were eliminated at the quarter finals stages by Uruguay.

According to reports in Spain, Jese will double his wages to earn around E1.2m per season, while a prohibitively large buy-out clause has also been inserted into the contract to deter interest from rival clubs.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
