Jonathan Matías Urretaviscaya da Luz (born 19 March 1990), commonly known as Urreta, is a Uruguayan professional footballer who plays for Portuguese club Paços de Ferreira as a right winger.

Club career[edit]

Born in Montevideo to a father of Basque descent, Urretaviscaya started off his career with hometown's Club Atlético River Plate, where he scored eight goals in 14 games. His first division debut came one month shy of his 18th birthday as he scored in a 2–0 win against Liverpool Montevideo, in the Clausura's first game.[1]

On 2 July 2008 Urretaviscaya signed a contract with Portuguese giants Sport Lisboa e Benfica, for a fee of 1.26 million, being rarely used in his debut season. In January 2010, after having made almost no official appearances during 2009–10 – his only league game was against F.C. Porto as the Reds had many players missings due to injuries and suspensions, and he put up a good performance in a 1–0 home win for the eventual champions[2]– he was loaned to C.A. Peñarol for five months, thus returning to his country.

In late June 2010 Urretaviscaya was loaned to Deportivo de La Coruña, in a season-long move.[3] In the following transfer window, however, he returned to Peñarol, in the same predicament.[4]

For 2011–12 Urretaviscaya returned to Portugal, being loaned to Vitória de Guimarães in a season-long move, while also renewing his contract till 2015.[5][6] He went on to miss most of the campaign due to injury.[7][8]

He spent the next two seasons at Benfica, appearing only for the B-team in the latter.[9] On 1 September 2014, Urreta terminated his contract with Benfica and penned a one-year deal with Paços de Ferreira.[10]
