Athletic Bilbao goalkeeper Gorka Iraizoz insists he is happy with the club despite speculation linking him with a transfer in the near future.

The 29-year-old former Espanyol shot-stopper, who has been linked with both Barcelona and Arsenal recently, is out of contract at the end of this season.

He said of the rumours: "If I stop to think what's going to happen in the future, I'm not going to enjoy what I have now, which is important.

"I've always been grateful to Athletic and I am happy they trust me. That's good news for everyone. I am focused on defending the colours of Athletic, continuing working as usual and not thinking about the rumours.

“I see the rumours as a compliment to the work of the whole team. The goal is to keep working every day to the fullest and giving 100 per cent to Athletic so that we can hold our heads up high."
