Valenta was noticed by PSV Eindhoven at the age of 17, while playing UEFA Intertoto Cup with Synot Staré Město. He went to Lommel pretty soon, because Valenta was too expensive for PSV. Czech Republic was not part of the European Union at that time, so PSV was ought to pay Valenta € 400.000 per year. But only one season later, Lommel went bankrupt.
Valenta did not immediately find a new team, so he signed an amateur contract with Dutch Hoofdklasse side HSC '21. He immediately shone out there at that level, and signed a new professional contract one season later with Cercle Brugge. Cercle found in him the successor of Harald Meyssen, but Valenta was never able fulfill the expectations. But in January 2007, Cercle released Valenta on a free transfer.
Valenta returned to Czech Republic by signing a 3-year contract with 1. FC Slovácko where he quickly became the team's captain. However, due to a dispute with Slovácko's manager Miroslav Soukup and the end of his contract he decided to retire from professional football at the age of only 28.
