Athletic extend Muniain contract to 2024

With injury issues seemingly behind the 25-year-old, Athletic Bilbao have handed Iker Muniain a new deal running to 2024.

Iker Muniain has signed a new contract, committing his future to Athletic Bilbao through to 2024.

The 25-year-old missed much of last season due to injury but has featured in 11 LaLiga games this term, although Athletic are hovering dangerously close to the relegation zone.

Muniain has shown fine form, though, contributing four goals, including finding the net in Athletic's 1-1 home draw against Real Madrid in September.

The versatile forward, who has spent his whole career at Athletic, won his sole Spain cap in 2012.

The club confirmed Muniain's new deal does not include any release clause.
