Inaki Williams pens a new nine-year contract with Athletic Bilbao, subsequently ending Manchester United's interest in the winger.

Athletic Bilbao have handed winger Inaki Williams a new nine-year contract.

Williams has spent his entire professional career with the La Liga outfit, contributing a total of 49 goals from 200 appearances in all competitions.

However, Manchester United were linked with an approach for the 25-year-old during the summer transfer window as they considered adding new attack-minded players to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad.

A transfer will not materialise in the near future, however, after Athletic opted to give Williams a deal which will not expire until 2028.

The Spanish outfit have also included a £125m release clause as part of the agreement in a bid to fend off any admirers of the forward.
