Returning Aduriz adds to Athletic options

UEFA Europa League challengers Athletic Club have re-signed striker Aritz Aduriz after the 31-year old agreed to return to Los Leones from Valencia CF for a reported €2.5m fee. 

A product of Athletic’s youth system, Aduriz – who has agreed on a three-year deal with last season’s UEFA Europa League finalists – had spells at Burgos CF and Real Valladolid CF before bedding in at San Mamés where he struck 22 goals in 85 top-flight games. A 2008 switch to RCD Mallorca followed but it was with Valencia, where he managed 17 goals in 57 Liga games, that the forward earned his only cap for Spain in a 3-1 UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying win at home to Lithuania in October 2010.

Athletic will present Aduriz and fellow recent new arrival Ismael López – the 22-year-old striker who has signed on a free transfer from CD Lugo – on Thursday. Marcelo Bielsa’s side will enter next season’s UEFA Europa League in the third qualifying round.
