A regular for the club's' B team, Real Madrid Castilla, he finished last season as the Spanish second division's top scorer with 22 goals.

After penning his new deal, the youngster tweeted: "I am very happy to have extended my contract and to play for the best club in the world. I will give my all for these colours."
