Jon Aurtenetxe Borde (born 3 January 1992) is a Spanish footballer who plays for CD Mirandés mainly as a left back but also as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Born in Amorebieta-Etxano, Biscay, Aurtenetxe joined Athletic Bilbao's youth system at the age of 10, arriving from neighbouring SD Amorebieta. With their youth team he was a finalist in the Copa del Rey Juvenil in 2009. On 16 December 2009, even before playing his first game with the reserves, the 17-year-old appeared for the first team in the UEFA Europa League, playing the full 90 minutes in a 0–3 group stage home loss against SV Werder Bremen.[1]

After returning to the youths and contributing to their 2010 Copa del Rey Juvenil victory, Aurtenetxe began the following season training with the first team (bypassing the typical route of progression for young players via farm team CD Basconia and B team Bilbao Athletic); he made his La Liga debut on 28 August 2010, starting and being booked in a 1–0 win at Hércules CF.[2] He made 10 league appearances before suffering a serious shoulder injury, and on returning to fitness late in the season he finished the campaign with Bilbao Athletic.

Aurtenetxe was definitely promoted to the main squad for 2011–12, under new manager Marcelo Bielsa.[3] He played 54 official matches during the season and scored four goals, to help the Basques reach both the Copa del Rey and the Europa League finals – he netted an important one in the club's 1–2 away loss against Sporting Clube de Portugal in the latter competition's semifinals (4–3 aggregate win).[4]

Aurtenetxe was a regular selection for Athletic in 2012-13 but was overlooked for Mikel Balenziaga in his position once Ernesto Valverde became manager. He spent the 13-14 season on loan with Celta Vigo, remained in Bilbao for 14-15 but rarely featured, and was loaned out again, to CD Tenerife in 15-16. In summer 2016 he left Athletic permanently, rescinded his contract and moved to CD Mirandés of the Segunda División on a free transfer.
