Athletic and Huesca have agreed a new scenario for Xabi Etxeita. The central Biscayan play next season as loaned in the newly promoted team to First Division. The deal establishes that the player will be able to face the rojiblanco club, which will pay a good part of his record. El Huesca will be Athletic’s rival in the second League match in San Mamés.
Etxeita (140 matches at Athletic) renewed last January until the end of the 2018-19 season and this preseason has been one of Berizzo’s first discards, which did not match him in either of the first two friendly matches of July and left him without traveling to De Lutte at the expense of closing the option to go to Huesca.
