Spanish side Atletico Madrid are still waiting for the return of their in-form Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey from international duty.

Partey who was part of Ghana's squad for their penultimate World Cup qualifier against Uganda and an international friendly with Saudi Arabia last week is yet to arrive at the club ahead of their Spanish La Liga game this weekend.

He was impressive for Ghana-scored a goal in Ghana's 3-0 win over Saudi Arabia and his return will boost coach Diego Simeone's plan going into their game this weekend.

The 26-year old is one of many players Diego Simeone is waiting for. Antoine Griezmann (France), Diego Godín and José María Giménez (Uruguay) and Sime Vrsaljko (Croatia) are all yet to arrive in Spain.
