Athletic begins to work on the future of the goal
After making Herrerín’s departure official, the club will assess a loan from Ezkieta and signing an experienced goalkeeper is not ruled out
The departure of Iago Herrerín is already official. The goalkeeper will leave Athletic at the end of this season, something that was assumed for just over a year. On Sunday he will be given a small tribute before his last league match in San Mamés.
This ad is the first step in the club’s plans regarding the goalkeeper position. Unai Simón is an untouchable and everything indicates that he will continue to be the starter for next season.
Jokin Ezkieta has a contract, but a possible transfer will be valued so that he can count on minutes to help him continue his evolution in the elite. Beyond some appearance in the Cup, the presence of the Navarrese with the first team has been very scarce.
Yes Ezkieta leaves on loan , It is not ruled out going to the market in search of an experienced goalkeeper to fill the position that would be free in the squad. What will not take place is the signing of Aitor Fernández, Levante goalkeeper and trained in Lezama.
In addition, in the subsidiary there is a young man who has been going strong. Is about Julen Agirrezabala, one of the most pleasant surprises of the season at Bilbao Athletic. At 20 years old, he has played 14 matches in Second B, showing a very good level.
He is agile, with good footwork and has proven to be a guarantee when it comes to stopping penalties. The sports management has a lot of confidence in him, which would lead him to be the goalkeeper of Joseba Etxeberria’s team in case of being promoted to Second.
