Former Leeds United prospect Elliot Kebbie is happy with his progress at Atletico Madrid.

The 17-year-old has yet to make his debut for Atletico, but as the only Englishman playing in Spain is relishing life at the Vicente Calderon.

Kebbie said in The Sun: "Spanish football suits my game, as I am a full-back but I like to get forward.

"I would certainly encourage more players at youth level at 17 and 18, as this is the time to develop.

"It is an important two or three years before first-team football. But I have trained with the first team six times and I have really enjoyed it."
