Martin Montoya

Martin Montoya signed for Brighton & Hove Albion on deadline day in August 2018, moving from La Liga club Valencia on undisclosed terms.

The former Barcelona and Inter Milan defender agreed a four-year contract with Albion.

Hailing from Catalonia, Montoya follows the path set by Albion skipper and fellow right-back Bruno, who also joined the Seagulls from the La Liga side in 2012.

Montoya spent nine years in the academy at the Nou Camp, before graduating to the club’s B side in 2009.

He broke into the senior Barcelona side in 2011 and made 67 appearances, helping the club to seven trophies - including one Champions League win and three La Liga titles.

Montoya spent the 2015/16 season on loan with Inter Milan and Real Betis, before moving to Valencia in 2016, where he made more than 50 appearances across two seasons.

The Spaniard made his Albion debut in the 3-2 win over Manchester United in August 2018, and made 29 appearances in all competitions during his first season at the club.
