OFFICIAL: Mikel San José is now Birmingham's “new recruit”

As Mundo Deportivo announced yesterday, Mikel San José already has a team. Birmingham City, which since this season has been training another ex-rojiblanco like Aitor Karanka, announced this afternoon that it has signed the Navarrese player, to whom Athletic did not offer a renewal at the end of last season.

“We are delighted to announce the arrival of the Spanish star Mikel San José,” the English team has communicated on their social networks after signing for two years. He will wear the shirt with the number 19.

The presentation of this new reinforcement of the British team has been somewhat curious, since San José has been included in a video as the last signing that has arrived. In this audiovisual, the new faces of Birmingham each appear under a pseudonym, like the credits of a feature film. “The new recruit” is the nickname used for Villava.

The player himself has posted a message on Twitter: “Happy to be here, I can't wait to join the team and start working together. This will be a very exciting season. Let's go @BCFC ”.

And Athletic also wished him the best of luck in his new stage: “Zorte on, Mikel”.
