Club career[edit]

Barcelona[edit]

Born in Irun, Gipuzkoa, Basque Country, Oier arrived in FC Barcelona's youth academy at the age of 18, from local Real Unión.[1] He spent his first years with the reserves as backup to another youth product, Rubén.

On 2 January 2008 Oier made his debut for the main squad, in the 2–2 home draw against CD Alcoyano for the season's Copa del Rey. More than one year after, on 17 May, he appeared for the first time in La Liga as Barça were already champions, in a 1–2 away loss against RCD Mallorca.[2]

For the 2009–10 campaign, after Albert Jorquera left for neighbours Girona FC, Oier was promoted to third-choice. He still continued to appear regularly for the B's, however.

Granada[edit]

On 11 July 2014 Oier signed a four-year deal with Granada CF, for an undisclosed fee.[3]
