Iturraspe extends Athletic contract

Athletic Bilbao have announced that Ander Iturraspe has extended his contract with the club until 2019.

In a statement on Los Leones’ official website, the midfielder, whose previous deal was due to expire in two years’ time, has also agreed a buyout threshold of €45m and will hold a Press conference on May 12 to explain the motives for his renewal.

The 26-year-old has firmly established himself as a key player for Athletic in recent seasons and was part of Vicente del Bosque’s provisional Spain squad for last summer’s World Cup.
