Athletic Bilbao striker Aritz Aduriz ‘back’ for Barcelona

Veteran Athletic Club Bilbao striker Aritz Aduriz is in contention to start in Saturday’s La Liga clash at Barcelona, say reports.

The 37-year-old has not featured for Los Leones since the opening day victory over Leganes but has been ruled out in the weeks since with muscular issues.

Aduriz was on the bench for the recent 1-1 draw against Real Madrid but did not make an appearance and has dropped out of the squad in subsequent matches.

Markel Susaeta is available again after serving a one-match ban against Villarreal while Unai Simon looks set to retain his place in goal with Iago Herrerin still unavailable.
