Ghana international Thomas Partey’s transfer decision will be supported by his father, Jacob.

The 26-year-old defensive midfielders has been linked with top English clubs such as Arsenal and Manchester United.

It is said that Partey has a release clause in his current contract with Spanish giants Atletico Madrid set at €50 million and it runs until 2023.

“My son’s current club Atletico Madrid has a release clause in Partey’s deal,” Jacob Partey said on Ghana Soccer Net.

“This means that any club which shows interest in signing him must meet those demands.

“So any team which meets Atletico’s demand will be able to sign my son and not specifically Arsenal as rumoured in a section of the media,” he added.

“I always call my son and he is of age to decide on a move…I am ready to support his decision.”

Partey has spent most of his career with Atlético Madrid, making over 150 competitive appearances.

A full Ghana international since 2016, he represented the nation at two Africa Cup of Nations tournaments.
