Spain striker Fernando Llorente has confirmed he plans to leave Athletic Bilbao when his contract expires at the end of the season - with a host of Premier League clubs, including Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal, interested.
The 27-year-old turned down the offer of a new deal and said he wanted to move on over the summer, but the club refused to negotiate with potential suitors.
Llorente, who has spent a large chunk of the current Primera Division season on the substitutes' bench because of the issue, said: "Yes, I'm leaving on June 30 . I want to try other things."
