Jonatan Valle Trueba (born 30 December 1984 in Santander, Cantabria) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a midfielder.

Football career[edit]

A product of hometown Racing de Santander's youth system, Valle first appeared with the main squad in the final matchday of the 2002–03 season, playing 11 minutes in a 2–3 La Liga home loss against CA Osasuna.[1] He would be "upgraded" definitely in the following campaign, but would never be an undisputed starter; on 20 December 2003, he scored a late penalty in a 2–2 draw at Atlético de Madrid.[2]

After spending 2006–07 on loan to second division side Málaga CF, Valle returned to Santander, playing almost no part in the Cantabria side's first-ever qualification to the UEFA Cup after finishing sixth (only eight matches, one start). For the 2008–09 season he was loaned again, to SD Ponferradina in the third level.[3]

In July 2009 Valle was bought by CD Castellón, with Racing retaining an option to reacquire the player.[4] However, merely five months later, he returned to Ponferrada in the same predicament, until the end of the season,[5] contributing with 11 starts and three goals as the club returned to division two after a three-year absence.[6]
