Five Players From Lezama Sent Out On Loan For Next Season
The most important aspect of developing young players is making sure that everyone gets adequate playing time. With so many talented footballers at Lezama this can often become difficult and it sometimes becomes necessary for some to leave on loan in order to continue their growth. Every summer a few players leave for the year and on Tuesday Athletic Club announced five who will be playing elsewhere next season.
Midfielder Aitor Gandiaga will be joining SD Gernika after playing with feeder club CD Basconia the last two years. Ibai Rodríguez and Gorka Cerrato will both be with Sodupe UC. Rodríguez joined Basconia last season from Retuerto and Cerrato spent the previous year on loan with Sondika. Lastly, Aitor Vellisca will play with JD Somorrostro and Eneko Basaldua will spend the year with Bermeo FT. Both midfielders were away on loan last year as well.
These five players will be hoping to see regular minutes while away on loan that will allow them to continue developing so that they can fight for their place at Athletic next year. As always, the club will be watching them closely in order to gauge their growth and help them make the best decisions for their futures.
