Bundesliga side Nurnberg have tied defender Javier Pinola to the club for the next three years.
The 24-year-old Argentine had been on loan from Atletico Madrid since the summer of 2005, but his impressive performances have now resulted in a permanent deal that keeps him at the club until June 2010.
"We have finalised all the formalities with Atletico and are delighted that Javier Pinola will be with us for the next three years," the club's sport director Martin Bader announced on Thursday.
Pinola has scored two goals in 40 Bundesliga appearances for the Bavarian side.
