Nico Williams, like the rest of his teammates, wrote himself into Athletic Club legend on Saturday, as he helped Ernesto Valverde’s side win the Copa del Rey for the first time in 40 years.

Williams provided the assist for Oihan Sancet’s equaliser, and in general, he provided an excellent performance, the latest of many this season. It has led to increased interest in his services, with a Premier League move heavily rumoured to take place in the summer.

However, Williams himself – almost overcome with emotion – told the media after the Copa final that he sees himself at Athletic for many years to come, as per Diario AS.

“I have many years left here, I am calm and happy. I can’t wait to get to Bilbao to celebrate.”
