Aymeric Laporte has signed a new contract with Athletic Bilbao despite interest from big clubs around Europe.

The 20-year old French centre-back has committed to the Basque club until 2018 amid attention from Premier League pair Arsenal and Manchester United.

Spanish giants Barcelona and German behemoth Bayern Munich had also been credited with interest but Laporte has opted to stay at the San Mames after helping the Lions finish fourth in La Liga last season.
