Sierra Leonean born teenager signed for Atletico Madrid?

According to insidespanishfootball, Dembakwi Yomba, United States U-18 star striker, who was born in Sierra Leone, may be the newest face of Atletico Madrid after the 17-year-old tweeted a picture of himself signing a contract allegedly with the Spanish giants.

According to NBC Sports, Yomba was slated to join the University of North Carolina on scholarship, but it now seems as though he will not be spending his immediate future in the United States with clubs such as Atletico Madrid highly interested in his signature.

The Georgia resident, though still only 17 years old, was one of the highest rated players coming out of High School and has already made a name for himself playing for both the US U-17 and U-18 sides in recent years.

Atletico Madrid has yet to comment on the rumours and there is no word yet on when, or if, Yomba will actually join the club in Madrid.
