Leganes loan Athletic’s Herrerin

Leganes have completed an emergency loan deal for Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Iago Herrerin until the end of the season, the club have confirmed.

The Madrid-based club made the move due to a long-term injury suffered by first-choice goalkeeper Jon Ander Serantes, who won La Liga's Player of the Month award for September earlier this season and has been a key part of the newly-promoted side's early success.

28-year-old Herrerin has played all five of Athletic's Europa League group stage games this campaign and has made 56 appearances in total for Athletic but is second choice at the Basque club to regular goalkeeper and club captain Gorka Iraizoz.

He will now compete for the number one spot at Leganes along with Italian Alberto Brignoli – on loan from Juventus.
