Asier del Horno is delighted with his move to Athletic Bilbao.
Del Horno has returned to the club following spells at Chelsea and Valencia, and hopes to make his Athletic debut for the second time around at Barcelona today.
"I am very excited about pulling on the shirt again and playing for this club. I hope I can play some part on Sunday," he said.
Del Horno, who arrives on loan from Valencia with a view to a permanent transfer, believes the Basque side are on the up again after a disappointing couple of years.
"The last two years have not been easy for the club, but the president has worked hard and a lot of new players have come in. We need to change the mentality and build confidence, but I am certain we can do well," he said.
