Jaime Gavilán Martínez (born 12 May 1985) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for South Korean club Suwon FC as a left midfielder.

He amassed La Liga totals of 203 games and 11 goals over the course of 12 seasons, representing mainly in the competition Valencia and Getafe.

Club career[edit]

Valencia[edit]

Born in Valencia, Valencian Community, Gavilán was a Valencia CF youth product. He made his first-team – and La Liga – debut one month shy of his 18th birthday, playing 12 minutes in a 0–1 away defeat against Real Valladolid on 19 April 2003. He also spent two full seasons with the B-side, in the third division.

Gavilán was gradually breaking into the main squad after two loans (CD Tenerifesecond level – and Getafe CF), even though he had to battle for that position with the gifted (although tremendously injury-prone) Vicente. However, after the arrival of new boss Ronald Koeman in November 2007, he was deemed surplus to requirements and was loaned again to Getafe, until the end of the season; the previous campaign, he suffered a serious knee ligament injury which kept him out of action for a period of six months.[1]

In his second spell with the Madrid outskirts side, Gavilán appeared prominently during half-a-season, netting in a 2–1 home win over Racing de Santander on 16 March 2008. He was also part of the team's quarterfinal run in the UEFA Cup, playing in three matches, all as a starter.

Getafe[edit]

On 15 July 2008, Gavilán signed a four-year deal with Getafe, thus losing all ties to Valencia.[2] During his first full season he was an everpresent midfield fixture and, on 12 April 2009, he scored the game's only goal in an important win at Sevilla FC.[3]

In 2009–10, Gavilán featured in 27 league games (no goals) as Getafe qualified for the second time ever for Europe, after finishing in sixth position. On 6 March 2011, in the last minutes of the first half of a 0–2 away defeat against Sporting de Gijón, he suffered the same injury to his knee, being sidelined for the rest of the campaign.[4]

Levante[edit]

Free agent Gavilán joined fellow top division club Levante UD in June 2014, signing a two-year contract with an option to extend for a further year.[5] On 30 January 2015, after appearing in only six competitive matches, he severed his link.[6]

Later years[edit]

After a brief spell in Greece with Platanias FC, Gavilán signed for Indian Super League side Atlético de Kolkata on 18 June 2015.[7]
