Athletic Bilbao keeper Lafuente joins Sporting Gijon on-loan

Athletic Bilbao have confirmed goalkeeper Inaki Lafuente has joined Sporting Gijon on-loan to the end of the season.

Lafuente, 33, is contracted to Bilbao until 2010 and was third-choice this season behind Gorka Iraizoz and Armando Ribeiro.

The capture of Lafuente ends a frustrating search for Sporting, which had been beaten by Real Mallorca for Dudu Aouate and also rejected in approaches for Albert Jorquera (Barcelona) and Jordi Codina (Real Madrid).
