Jaime Romero Gómez (born 31 July 1990) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Real Zaragoza on loan from Udinese Calcio as a left midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Born in Valdeganga, Albacete, Romero made his professional debuts with hometown's Albacete Balompié in the 2008–09 season – aged only 18 – only missing six Segunda División games out of 42, starting 26 and totalling almost 2,400 minutes as the Castile-La Mancha side retained its league status. His maiden appearance in the competition occurred on 31 August 2008 as a 75th minute substitute in a 2–1 home win against Sevilla Atlético,[1] and he scored his first goal on 15 November, contributing to a 2–2 draw against UD Salamanca also at the Estadio Carlos Belmonte.[2]

In the 2009 summer, Romero signed for Udinese Calcio in Italy.[3] He made four league appearances in his first year in Serie A, and mainly played with the club's under-20 team in the Campionato Nazionale Primavera.[4]

In late June 2010, Udinese agreed a double loan deal with A.S. Bari, subject to Romero and Andrea Coda's decision.[5] After appearing for the former during pre-season,[6][7] the former eventually moved to the Apulia club on 2 August.[8][9]

After appearing in less than one fourth of the league matches, and also suffering top division relegation, Romero was loaned again, returning to his country and joining Granada CF. He made his La Liga debut on 27 August 2011, starting and being replaced in the second half of a 0–1 home loss against Real Betis.[10]
