Athletic Bilbao have confirmed that they have signed Ibai Gomez to a new contract, committing him to the club until June 2017.
Rumours earlier in the week were that the two parties, after months of negotiations, had come to an agreement on such a deal, and today the Basques have made official the news.
Ibai, whose previous deal was due to expire in June 2014, has agreed a three-year extension to take him through to the end of the 2016-17 campaign, whilst his buyout clause is set at €35m.
This news follows Athletic’s recent contract extensions handed to long serving duo Carlos Gurpegi and Andoni Iraola, who both are now committed until June 2015.
