Athletic Bilbao have agreed a deal to sign their former striker Aritz Aduriz from Valencia on a three-year contract.

The 31-year-old Aduriz came up through the youth ranks at Athletic and spent two spells in the first team either side of time at Burgos and Real Valladolid.

In 2008 Aduriz left San Mames to join Real Mallorca, where he spent two seasons before moving to Valencia, with whom he earned his first Spain cap.

A statement on Athletic's official website read: "Athletic Bilbao and Valencia have reached an agreement for the transfer of Aritz Aduriz to our club.

"The player will remain at Athletic for the next three seasons."
