Real Sociedad give young star Mikel Oyarzabal new six-year contract

Spain winger Mikel Oyarzabal signed a new six-year contract with Real Sociedad on Friday.

Transfer speculation had linked the 19-year-old with a move to Athletic Bilbao, who had reportedly agreed to pay Oyarzabal's €40 million release clause.

But the promising young star now will now stay with Sociedad until 2022.

Oyarzabal scored six times in La Liga last season, earning him his first cap against Bosnia-Herzegovina in a friendly in May.
