Sillero was promoted to Bilbao Athletic back in 2016 and soon established himself as a starter. Tomorrow he will 21 years old and has committed his future to the club.
Athletic officially announced on Thursday that Sillero has signed a two-year renewal with the club which will run through 2021. Specifics on the contract were not given, but there is a chance that Sillero could train with the first team this summer.
Sillero has already made 78 appearances for Bilbao Athletic, but this season wasn’t easy. The right-back was in great form before suffering a fractured foot in January which kept him sidelined for the rest of the year. Sillero will have the summer to complete his recovery and will go into the new year with high expectations to prove that he can fight for a place in the first team very soon.
