Jokin Arcaya Esparza, simply known as Jokin (born 15 June 1988 in Pamplona, Navarre), is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Greek club Veria F.C. as a left midfielder.

Football career[edit]

After emerging through local CA Osasuna's youth ranks, Jokin made his La Liga debut on 17 June 2007 in a 1–2 home loss against Atlético Madrid.[1] However, he would only appear in five more matches for the first team in the following two seasons combined, which prompted a loan to second division club SD Huesca in January 2009; he was relatively used as the team maintained its recently acquired status.

For the 2010–11 campaign Jokin was again loaned to Huesca, in a season-long move.[2] In August 2011, he signed a permanent deal with the Aragonese.[3]

In February 2013 Jokin signed for Panathinaikos FC in the Superleague Greece, penning a six-month contract.[4] In late May of the following year, following a brief spell back in his country with lowly Zamora CF, he joined another Greek top-divisioner, Veria FC.[5]
