Manchester United target Ander Herrera is keen on extending his stay at Athletic Bilbao, reports Spanish newspaper AS.

The 24-year-old central midfielder, who was reportedly close to joining Manchester United on deadline day of last summer's transfer window, has again reiterated his desire to stay in Spain.

Athletic Bilbao star Herrera, who is a first-team regular at San Mames, is apparently still attracting interest from Manchester United.

David Moyes is desperate to strengthen his midfield options in the January transfer window, as his side are currently languishing in ninth spot in the Premier League.

Manchester United midfielders Marouane Fellaini, Tom Cleverley and Anderson have come under heavy criticism this season as the Red Devils have struggled for form.

Herrera, who is valued at £30million, is said to be high up on Moyes' transfer list, however he has indicated to the Premier League champions that he is happy to stay in Spain.

When asked if he was keen on moving to Old Trafford, Herrera told AS:

"It's something I'm not going to talk about anymore as it does not help.

"I explained what I had. I'm fine here, I've always said, and will continue at Athletic.

"Yes [I do plan to extend my contract]. It is a question that you asked me when I spoke to United.

"I am really happy at Athletic. I have over two and a half years left on my contract."
