Ander Herrera has signed for Athletic Club permanently, ending his loan spell from PSG. The midfielder has signed a contract until 2024 with the Basque club, confirmed by the club and the player.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Ander Herrera’s sale helped PSG go through with Keylor Navas’ loan deal to Nottingham Forest. The goalkeeper has signed for the Premier League side on a loan until the end of the season.

“For me it is not news. When I came I already knew that I would be there for two years. I understand that this official status will have been a bureaucratic issue,” Herrera said after the buy option was triggered.
“From the day I came to Bilbao I already knew how long I was going to be at Athletic and the contract I was going to have. Then the issue between clubs is something that is not my responsibility.
“I already had defined all personal terms of operation from the day I signed in the summer.”
Herrera was on loan at the La Liga club from summer 2022, and six months later, he has signed permanently. His previous spell with Athletic Club was from 2011 to 2014 before he joined Manchester United. This season, the 33-year-old has made 11 appearances across all competitions, playing for 467 minutes.
