Real Sociedad de Fútbol forward Imanol Agirretxe said he was keen to "live some more very special years" with the Basque outfit after signing a new three-year deal.

Involved in all four of the Txuri-urdin's UEFA Champions League group stage matches this season, Agirretxe – who is one game short of 100 appearances in the Spanish top flight – is thrilled to be remaining at his boyhood club until June 2018.

"This is where I want to be so I am very happy," he said. "Time passes so fast and you continue racking up important figures [in your career]." Agirretxe has scored 42 goals in 165 first and second division outings for La Real since making his debut in 2005.
