A report claims that Ander Herrera will remain with Athletic Bilbao this summer despite interest from Barcelona.

Athletic Bilbao will reportedly repel any interest from Barcelona in their Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera this summer.

It had been reported on Sunday that Barca were preparing a move for the playmaker, with Cesc Fabregas seemingly heading for the exit door this summer.

However, according to AS, Bilbao will not let the 24-year-old depart for anything less than his £30m release clause – a figure that Barcelona are not prepared to meet this summer.

As a result, Herrera, who helped Bilbao finish fourth in La Liga during the 2013-14 campaign, will remain at San Mames.

Herrera's current deal with Bilbao expires in two years.
