Jon Andoni 'Jonan' García Aranbillet (born 8 January 1983 in Bilbao, Biscay) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a midfielder.

Football career[edit]

A product of Athletic Bilbao's famed youth academy, Lezama, García made his first-team debut on 30 August 2003, in a 0–1 La Liga home loss against FC Barcelona. As the Basque eventually finished fifth and qualified for the UEFA Cup, most of his appearances were made from the bench; he scored his first goal as a professional in a rare start, netting the game's only at Villarreal CF on 29 February 2004.

In the 2004–05 season García featured even less, being released subsequently and spending two years in the second division, with CD Castellón and Ciudad de Murcia. He did not finish the 2006–07 campaign in Spain, having a six-month spell with Aris Thessaloniki FC.

García then returned to his country and played in the third level, with SE Eivissa-Ibiza, his solid performances earning him a return to the "silver category" where he was very important in SD Huesca's retaining of its league status, 57 years after the last visit.

In the following years, García resumed his career in division three returning to the second level for 2011–12 with CD Guadalajara.
