Athletic Bilbao have signed goalkeeper Gorka Iraizoz on a four-year deal from Espanyol.

The 26-year-old will join for a fee in the region of £2.7million, with fellow keeper Inaki Lafuente moving in the opposite direction on a season-long loan.

Iraizoz has been at Espanyol for five years and was ever-present in the UEFA Cup last season as the club were beaten by Sevilla in the final.
