Seitaridis, who can play right back, right midfield or in the center of defense, has agreed to a four-year contract, while Costinha's will be for two years. Seitaridis, who turns 25 on Sunday, played for Greece when it won the 2004 European Championship. He previously spent a season with FC Porto. The 32-year-old Costinha won the Champions League and UEFA Cup with FC Porto. The Portugal international has also played for Monaco. Atletico appointed Mexican coach Javier Aguirre last week and in a planned major revamp of the team. The club has also agreed to sign two Argentine players - Independiente's teenage forward Sergio Aguero and Getafe left back Mariano Pernia. Atletico, which is regarded as Spain's third-most important club after Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, last won a title in 1996, when it claimed the league and cup double. (AP)
