Fans’ favourite ‘Basque Jon’ signs new deal at Dundee

Jon Aurtenetxe has extended his stay at Dens Park.

Dundee have secured the services of defender Jon Aurtenetxe.

The Basque left back has extended his stay at Dens Park until the end of the season at least.

The 26-year-old joined the Dens Park side in August after a spell at his hometown team Amorebieta.

Aurtenetxe was previously a regular for Athletic Bilbao and featured in the 2012 Uefa Europa League final.

Dubbed ‘Basque Jon’ by supporters because of his impressive displays lately, Aurtenetxe has quickly become a fans’ favourite.

He had to be patient waiting for his debut but has been a regular in the Dark Blues defence.
