Atletico Madrid have confirmed that they will be taking up their option on Javier Arizmendi.
The Spanish international was a product of the Vicente Calderon youth system, but he never lived up to his huge potential.
However, despite selling him to Deportivo La Coruna last year - Atletico inserted a buy-back clause in the deal and they have now exercised it.
Atletico will pay é¼3 million for Arizmendi - twice the amount they received from Depor for the player.
Sporting director Jesua Garcia Pitarch confirmed the deal saying: "He will return in June."
