Athletic Bilbao's Mikel Rico joins Huesca

Mikel Rico has returned to former club Huesca, after ten years away at Granada and Athletic Bilbao.

The 34-year old's contract at San Mames expired at the end of June 2019, and the club informed him they would not be offering him a new deal after six years in the Basque Country.

Huesca have now moved to bring the popular midfielder to the back to the Estadio El Alcoraz, where he played a key role in helping them achieve promotion on loan from Poli Ejido in 2007-08, before signing permanently for the 2008-09 season.

Huseca boss Francisco Rodriguez has been active in the summer transfer market, as he looks to prepare his side for life back in the Segunda Division, following their relegation in May 2019.

The departure of midfielder Gonzalo Melero to La Liga side Levante has freed up some much needed funds, and Rodriguez has already brought in Joaquin Munoz on loan from Atletico Madrid and Alvaro Fernandez from AS Monaco on a permanent deal.
