Athletic confirm Herrera deal

Athletic Bilbao have confirmed a deal is in place to sign Ander Herrera from Real Zaragoza at the end of the season.

The transfer was first reported last week, but neither club has been willing to confirm it until now.

"Real Zaragoza and Athletic Club had entered into an agreement for the transfer of the rights of Ander Herrera effective from July 1, 2011," a club statement said.

"For his part, the player has entered into a contract with Athletic club from the 2011-12 season until the 2015-16 season inclusive, with a buyout clause of 36million euros for the first three seasons and €40 million for the last two."

No fee was announced, but it has been reported that Athletic will pay two instalments totalling €7.5 million for the 21-year-old Basque-born midfielder, a Spain Under-21 international.
