Herrera has no plans to leave Bilbao for Man Utd

Ander Herrera suggests rumours linking him with a move to Manchester United should be put to bed.

The Athletic Bilbao midfielder was reportedly on the verge of completing a summer shift to Old Trafford before a deal fell over and was again a target for David Moyes in last month's transfer window.

However, 24-year old Spaniard Herrera insists he is completely happy with Los Leones and is in no hurry to depart San Mames anytime soon.

"I made it clear at the time," he told El Confidencial.

"I am grateful to United for their interest and to Athletic for considering me to be more valuable than money.

"Athletic have made it clear that they have no intention of selling.

"We are a solid club with a good economic standing. We are privileged.

"We are stable financially, well respected, have a new stadium and a great team - no Athletic players want to leave."
