Dídac Vilà Rosselló (born 9 June 1989) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for SD Eibar on loan from A.C. Milan as a left back.

Club career[edit]

Espanyol[edit]

Born in Mataró, Barcelona, Catalonia, Vilà joined local RCD Espanyol's youth system at the age of 10, making his senior debuts in the 2008–09 season and helping the reserves promote from the fourth division, as champions.

He was promoted to the first team by manager Mauricio Pochettino, making his La Liga debut on 30 January 2010 in a 1–0 home win against Athletic Bilbao[1] and ending his first professional campaign with 11 league games (starting and playing all the minutes in every match), as the Pericos finished in mid-table.

Milan[edit]

After missing the first months of 2010–11 due to physical problems, Vilà once again gained first-choice status at Espanyol, taking over longtime incumbent – and also a youth graduate at the club – David García. On 28 January 2011, he was bought by A.C. Milan in Serie A.[2]

After only one official appearance for the Italians, Vilà returned to Espanyol in early June 2011, in a season-long loan. He only missed one match during the league campaign, scoring twice but in as many away losses.[3][4]

At the beginning of 2012–13 Vilà was set to join Valencia CF on loan, with the Che having the option of making the move permanent at the end of the season,[5][6] but the deal fell apart as he did not pass the required medical exams.[7][8] Subsequently the player underwent surgery, failing to make an official appearance for the Rossoneri.

For the 2013–14 season, Vilà moved to Real Betis on loan.[9] After the Andalusians' relegation he subsequently returned to Milan, and joined SD Eibar on 26 August 2014 also in a temporary deal.[10]

International career[edit]

In 2011, Vilà received his first callup for the Spanish under-21s. That year he was selected by manager Luis Milla to the UEFA European Championship in Denmark, playing all the matches and minutes for the eventual champions.
