Ernesto Valverde will not take charge of Athletic Bilbao next season amid speculation he will imminently be announced as the new Barcelona coach.

While Barcelona are yet to confirm the name of their new coach - an announcement is scheduled for May 29 - Valverde has been considered among the front-runners for the post since Luis Enrique said in March he would leave Camp Nou at the end of the current campaign.

The 58-year-old is a former Barcelona player, having been on the books of the club between 1988 and 1990, and collected Copa del Rey and UEFA Cup Winners' Cup medals despite mostly being used as a squad player.
