Athletic Bilbao 1-1 Eibar: City target Laporte left out in derby draw


Athletic Bilbao drew 1-1 at home against derby rivals Eibar, where their 23-year-old defender Aymeric Laporte was suddenly left out of the Bilbao squad amid transfer speculation that he was about to complete a £57 million move to Manchester City. Aritz Aduriz broke the deadlock for the hosts on 50 minutes with his eighth league goal of the season, but Kike Garcia grabbed the equaliser for Eibar in the 73rd minute. The result extends Bilbao's unbeaten run to 10 league games, but seven of those matches were draws.
