Born in Eibar, Gipuzkoa, Susaeta came through the ranks of Athletic Bilbao, spending one season with the farm team and another with the B-side. At the start of 2007–08 he was also registered for the reserves, but was given his first-team debut on 2 September 2007 and managed to score in a 1–3 loss at FC Barcelona; he finished with 29 La Liga appearances, netting on four occasions.

In the following years, Susaeta established himself firmly in Athletic's first team, although still not an undisputed starter for the Basque side. On 31 January 2009, he scored four minutes from time to give his team a 3–2 home win against Málaga CF, in an eventual narrow escape from relegation; he also appeared in six matches in the campaign's Copa del Rey, as they reached the final against Barcelona.

Susaeta came on as a substitute in the 2015 Spanish Cup final, once more lost to Barcelona. He also played in both legs of the following edition of the Supercopa de España, in which his team finally overcame the same opponent.

In 2016, Susaeta broke the club record for appearances in European competition, passing the total of 55 set in the 1970s by goalkeeper José Ángel Iribar (who also held the overall appearances record by some margin).

International career

On 9 November 2012, following a series of good displays, Susaeta was called up to the Spain national team for the first time, being selected by manager Vicente del Bosque for a friendly against Panama on the 14th and scoring the final goal in the 5–1 win in Panama City. He also featured for the unofficial Basque Country regional side.
