Athletic Bilbao striker Aritz Aduriz admits Fernando Llorente's situation is still hanging over the club.

Athletic Bilbao striker Aritz Aduriz admits Fernando Llorente's situation is still hanging over the club.

Llorente's relationship with the Basque side has turned sour this season and last month it was confirmed he will join Juventus in the summer, but he remains an Athletic player for the rest of the campaign.

Aduriz told El Mundo Deportivo: "It is an uncomfortable situation for everyone. For him, for us, for everyone.

"All he, too, wants is to finish discussing such matters and that we focus a bit on what really interests us, which is that the team comes out ahead.

"This week, for example, very little has been said of the match against Espanyol."
