Amorebieta: In demand
Liverpool, Manchester United and Newcastle are all reported to be battling it out for Athletic Bilbao defender Fernando Amorebieta.
Reports in Spain claim the Premier League trio are keeping tabs on the highly-rated centre-back.
All three clubs are believed to have watched the 22-year-old on a couple of occasions this season as they consider making a move for his signature in the summer.
Amorebieta, who has a contract with Bilbao until 2011, says he is flattered by the interest but insists he is no rush to leave San Mames.
"I'm very happy here and also that people are noticing me," said Amorebieta.
"It's nice to know people are interested in you."
