Francisco Javier Yeste Navarro (born December 6, 1979 in Basauri, Biscay) is a Spanish footballer who currently plays for Athletic Bilbao.

Usually an attacking midfielder (although he can also play in the left wing), he is best known for his skills and crossing ability.

Football career

A product of Athletic de Bilbao's prolific youth ranks, Yeste made his first team debut on February 7, 1999, playing 90 minutes in a 0–2 loss at Racing de Santander. He would appear in a further 13 matches during that and the following seasons, while mainly registered with the reserves.

From 2000–01 onwards, Yeste was an automatic first-choice, netting six league goals during that season, including two in a 4–0 home win over Real Oviedo, on December 10, 2000. After some scintillating displays in 2003–04, he won a callup for Spain, although he did not make his debut. He scored a career-best 11 goals, with the Basque finishing fifth, good enough for a UEFA Cup berth.

At times troubled with injuries, Yeste continued to appear prominently, playing in all the league contests of 2006–07, as Athletic barely avoided relegation (17th). He also added five goals in the process. A player of volatile temperament, he was also sent off five times from 2007–09, including once after pushing Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas, in a 2–5 home loss.
