SERGIO REGUILON has returned to Spain after signing for Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan from Tottenham.
The 25-year-old has failed to deliver in North London after joining from Atletico's city rivals Real Madrid in 2020.
The left-back lost his place in the Spurs team to Ryan Sessegnon under Antonio Conte last season.
And following the arrival of wing-back Ivan Perisic, the ex-Sevilla loanee was deemed surplus to requirements by the Italian gaffer.
He has been omitted from all four of Spurs' opening Premier League clashes with Conte banishing him from the first-team squad.
Reguilon was linked with a switch to the Wanda Metropolitano last week prior to Spurs' 2-0 away win at Nottingham Forest.

Reguilon departs Spurs having scored twice in 67 games in all competitions.
He had seemed destined to join Lazio before Atletico entered the fray.
