Jorge Alberto Ortiz (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈxorxe orˈtiθ]; born June 20, 1984 in Castelar) is an Argentine football midfielder currently playing for Tijuana on loan from Argentine Primera División-side Independiente.[1]

Career[edit]

Ortiz made his professional debut for San Lorenzo in 2004. He was loaned to Arsenal de Sarandí for the 2006–07 season so he played no part in San Lorenzo's Clausura winning campaign. He returned to San Lorenzo for the start of the 2007 Apertura.[1] Later in 2007, Ortiz moved to Swedish club AIK.[1] Although he was plagued by injuries during his debut season for the club, he established himself as a key player for the team during the 2009 campaign where they won the double. In June 2010, AIK and Jorge Ortiz mutually decided to break off their contract, which would have expired in December 2011.[2]

Ortiz rejoined Arsenal de Sarandí on a three-year contract by the start of the 2010–11 Argentine Primera División season.[3] After three years and 100 league appearances with Arsenal, Ortiz left to join Lanús where he scored 4 goals in 51 league matches before moving clubs once again, this time agreeing to join Independiente in June 2015. He made his Independiente debut on 26 July against Atlético de Rafaela.[1]
