Nico Williams signs three-year contract extension at Athletic Club

The winger renews his contract until 2027 with the aim of making more history at Athletic

Athletic Club forward Nico Williams, whose current contract was set to expire at the end of this season, has put pen to paper on a new three-year deal keeping him in Bilbao until 30 June 2027.

Despite being just 21 years old, the international footballer is only four appearances away from reaching 100 matches as a Lion. He is our top assist maker so far this campaign having set up five goals, while nine of his 13 senior strikes came last season.

Athletic have tied down a player who was linked with some of Europe’s biggest sides. However, Nico has chosen to continue making history as a Zurigorri alongside his brother Iñaki Williams and the rest of his teammates.

The pacy winger arrived to Lezama a decade ago at under-12 level and has since made steady progress on his way to becoming a crucial figure in the first team.

Nico, who competed in the last World Cup as a 20-year-old, is a footballer of enormous talent with the ability to impact the present and future. He signed his new deal at San Mames on Friday morning alongside Athletic Club president Jon Uriarte and our director of football, Mikel González.

In line with the Board's policy, Nico's new agreement has a fixed salary structure with a variable component based on objectives.
