Igor Martínez Caseras (born 19 July 1989 in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Álava, Basque Country) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for CD Lugo mainly as an attacking midfielder.

Club career[edit]

After beginning his career at hometown's Deportivo Alavés, in the second and third divisions, Martínez moved to Basque neighbours Athletic Bilbao in the summer of 2010, for 200,000 and a three-year contract.[1] He was initially assigned to the reserve side, also in the third level.

On 18 September 2010, Martínez made his official debut with the first-team, starting and playing 70 minutes in a 2–2 away draw against Sporting de Gijón.[2] He only appeared in ten La Liga games in his first two seasons combined, however.

Martínez scored his first goal for Athletic on 30 August 2012, in a UEFA Europa League qualifying round game at HJK Helsinki, netting the last in a 3–3 draw (9–3 aggregate win).[3] Released in 2013, he resumed his career in division two, with CD Mirandés and CD Lugo.
