‘And finally When talking with him I think I’ve made a step forward in that respect. And you see I’m not kicked off the field anymore,’ said the 23-year-old midfielder.

Sanset previously signed a nine-year contract with Athletic Bilbao last season. This comes amid interest from Premier League clubs. But the 23-year-old midfielder is not ruling out the possibility of a move away from San Mames Barria in the future either.

‘You never close the door. You will always have the choice to leave or have a team sign you. But I don’t give importance to that. I have signed a long-term contract with Athletic and my thoughts now are to stay at Athletic and achieve great things here. As for what will happen in the future, no one knows.’
