Antonio Jesús Cotán Pérez (born 19 September 1995) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a central midfielder for Dutch second division club Roda JC.

Club career[edit]

Sevilla[edit]

Born in Olivares, Province of Seville, Andalusia, Cotán came through the youth ranks at local club Sevilla FC, spending his first season as a senior with the reserves in the third division. On 9 January 2013 he first appeared with the first team, against RCD Mallorca for the campaign's Copa del Rey, but did not leave the bench in the 1–2 home loss.[1]

On 8 August 2013, one month shy of his 18th birthday, Cotán made his first official appearance with the Andalusians, playing the entire second half in a 6–1 away win over FK Mladost Podgorica in the third qualifying round of the UEFA Europa League.[2] On 11 May of the following year, as the main squad had already secured the fifth place and manager Unai Emery was resting his starters for the Europa League final, he made his La Liga debut, featuring the full 90 minutes in a 0–1 loss at Getafe CF.[3]

Cotán subsequently featured almost exclusively for the B-side in the following years, helping the side in their promotion to Segunda División in 2016. He scored his first professional goal on 21 August of that year, netting the first in a 3–3 home draw against Girona FC.[4]

Valladolid[edit]

On 8 August 2017, Cotán signed a two-year contract with fellow second level club Real Valladolid, with Sevilla holding a buy-back clause.[5] He featured rarely during the campaign, appearing in eight matches as his side achieved top tier promotion.

On 30 January 2019, after failing to appear in any league matches for the season, Cotán terminated his contract.[6]

Gimnàstic[edit]

On 31 January 2019, Cotán agreed to a six-month deal with Gimnàstic de Tarragona in the second division.[7]
