Brian Óscar Sarmiento (born 22 April 1990) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays for Club Atlético Banfield on loan from Peruvian club Real Garcilaso as a forward.

Other than in his country, he played in Spain, Brazil and Peru.

Club career[edit]

Born in Rosario, Santa Fe, Sarmiento began his career in Argentina with Estudiantes de La Plata, signing for La Liga side Racing de Santander in July 2007. A complicated transfer situation between both clubs, which involved the Court of Arbitration for Sport's mediation, meant that the 17-year-old spent the entire 2007–08 season without making a single first-team appearance.[1]

For the 2008–09 campaign, Sarmiento was loaned to Xerez CD in Segunda División,[2] first appearing officially in a 1–1 home draw against Real Murcia on 3 September 2008 for that year's Copa del Rey.[3] Although not an undisputed starter, he did feature significantly[4] as the Andalusians achieved a first-ever top flight promotion, earning the nickname Currito de Jerez by their fans in the process.[5]

On 31 August 2009, Sarmiento went on another season-long loan, yet in the second level, now with Girona FC. He made his first appearance on 3 October in a 2–2 draw against SD Huesca, scoring his team's second goal,[6] but was released by the Catalans in late January 2010 for disciplinary issues,[7] subsequently training with former club Santander to stay fit.[8]

Sarmiento spent 2010–11 with UD Salamanca, again on loan and in the Spanish division two.[9] On 15 January 2011 he netted his first league for goal for the Castile and León team, but in 2–3 home loss to FC Barcelona B.[10] On 1 March he scored the game's only goal at home against Villarreal CF B, helping the side to their first win in three months.[11]

International career[edit]

Sarmiento was named Best Newcomer while playing for the Argentine under-17 team, in a friendly tournament in 2006.[12] He also represented the nation at under-20 level.[13]
