Athletic Club and Mikel Vesga have reached an agreement to extend the footballer’s contract, which was due to expire at the end of the current season, until June 30, 2024. The buyout clause will be set at €50 million.

The central midfielder arrived at Lezama for the 2014-15 campaign. He made 38 appearances for Bilbao Athletic that same season and helped the reserve side achieve promotion to the Segunda División.

Vesga made his debut with the first team in the 2016-17 season against Sporting Gijón, the team which he was loaned to that same campaign. He returned to Athletic for the 2017-18 season before going on loan to then LaLiga Santander side CD Leganés in 2018-19.

Mikel came back to Bilbao in June 2019 and since then has played a total of 69 matches for Athletic (52 in LaLiga, nine in the Copa and eight in the Europa League. In this current season, the industrious midfielder has racked up 850 minutes of playing time so far, after being involved in 14 of Athletic’s 18 LaLiga Santander fixtures.

Mikel Vesga will hold a virtual press conference at 17:00 CET this evening, before attending first team training.
