Ghanaian starlet Thomas Teye Partey is hogging the headlines at Spanish giant Atletico Madrid. 

At a tender age of 19, Partey possesses relentless ball retention abilities and incredible ball circulation capabilities earning him comparison to Barcelona's Andres Inieta.

The Krobo Odumasi-born has been a shinning example at the hallowed Atletico Madrid youth academy.

And has already made a first team appearances for Los Colchoneros, setting up one of the goals in the 2-1 win over Colombian side Millonarios in May.

Atletico boss Diego Simeone has been monitoring the progress of the young midfielder who is exhibiting growing subtlety and ingenuity.

His powerful long range that narrowed the deficit for the Atletico B in last weekend's 2-1 loss at Sporting Gijón just adds to his immeasureable qualities.

Youth football development watchers in the Spanish capital have tipped the youngster to excel.

He is flourishing at the academy together with compatriot Benjamin Akoto Asamoah who plays for the Atletico Madrid III.

    its good we get to know who is performing, what u do is wat is seen, i hope very soon the right players will be called up for our national, not players who pay to be pick and do not perform,ghana is blessed with football talents, comapare our size to nigeria, ivory coast, cameroun, egypt and south africa,but ghana always produces enormous football talents and are still nursing and harvesting more football geniuses. i have a lot of very good players i am managing now and watch out for them, i ve one even at 18 can play far better than kotoko's ben acheampong
