Jonathan Martins Pereira (born 30 January 1986 in Bayonne) is a French football defender who currently plays for Troyes AC of Ligue 2.


Pereira began his career with AST Foot Tarnos. In 1998, he moved to Aviron Bayonnais FC. He was later scouted by Lens and played in the training center of club's the youth teams. After two years with Lens, he moved on loan for a season to Amiens. Pereira played one more season for Lens, before he transferred on a three-year contract to Ajaccio.[1][2] After a difficult first season in Corsica, his play improved during the 2008-2009 season, and he started contributing in attack, scoring 2 goals.[3] During the winter transfer window of the 2009-10 season, he joined Nantes[4] on a 2½-year contract, but could not help the club to earn promotion to Ligue 1.[5]

At the end of his contract he moved to Guingamp, whom he got promoted to Ligue 1 at the end of the 2012-13 season. On 3 May 2014, he scored Guingamp's opener in the 2014 Coupe de France Final, as they eventually beat Breton rivals Rennes 2–0.[6]

A few months later, after being released by Guingamp, Martins Pereira joined Ligue 2 side Troyes AC on a one-year contract.[7]
