Striker arrives from Athletic Bilbao...

The club has completed the loan signing of Enrique ‘Kike’ Sola Clemente from Athletic Bilbao.

The 29-year-old has joined the club on loan until the end of the season and linked up with his new team-mates for the first time on Friday, ahead of the trip to Bristol City.

A former Spanish Under-21 international, Kike Sola started his career as a youth player at Athletic Bilbao and returned to the club in 2013 from Osasuna.

The striker has made 10 appearances for Bilbao this season and Aitor Karanka says he will be a good addition to his promotion chasing squad.

“He is a player who can bring something different,” said Karanka.

“He is strong, he can play as a second striker and as a number 10.

“He brings something extra we don't have.”
