Christophe Atangana And Aritz De Miguel Join Somorrostro And Leioa On Loan
Lezama goalkeeper Christophe Atangana returned to Leioa on loan over the summer following a challenging year away from Athletic. After making six appearances in the previous campaign the 19-year-old has seen the field just three times this season which has prompted Athletic to terminate the loan after 18 months in search of a better fit elsewhere.
On Monday the club announced that Atangana has left Leioa and is signing with Somorrostro on loan for the remainder of the season. Moving down to the Tercera may be seen as a step backward for the goalkeeper but the most important thing at this point is having consistent minutes. As a result, the move has also affected another young goalkeeper at Lezama.
With Atangana leaving Leioa, Basconia’s Aritz De Miguel will be taking his place. The 20-year-old has signed with Leioa on loan for the remainder of the season. De Miguel has managed to make 9 appearances for Basconia despite being the backup to Julen Agirrezabala and will now have the opportunity to compete for minutes and continue his development in the Segunda B.
