Marcos Gullón Ferrera (born 20 February 1989) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Dutch club Roda JC Kerkrade as a midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Born in Madrid, Gullón started his career with Villarreal CF, going on to represent both reserve teams in his beginnings as a senior. In the 2008–09 season, whilst with the B-side, he contributed with 36 games – play-offs included – as they promoted to Segunda División for the first time ever.[1]

Gullón continued to be first-choice for the B's in the following years. His competitive input with the main squad, however, consisted of six matches, the first occurring on 29 October 2009 in a 1–1 away draw against CD Puertollano for the campaign's Copa del Rey;[2] his maiden appearance in La Liga took place ten days later, as he came on as an 87th-minute substitute in a 2–3 loss at Sevilla FC.[3]

In 2011–12, Gullón experienced three relegations as both Villarreal A and B dropped down a level – in the latter case, in spite of ranking in 12th position in the second level. He signed for top flight club Racing de Santander in January 2012,[4] and they finished dead last.[5]

After another drop with the Cantabrians, Gullón spent the following two-and-a-half seasons in the Cypriot First Division with Apollon Limassol,[6] scoring four goals from 31 appearances in his first to help his team to the third place. In 2016, in another winter transfer window move, he joined Roda JC Kerkrade from the Dutch Eredivisie.[7]

International career[edit]

Four youth categories comprised, Gullón earned 24 caps for Spain. The first of three for the under-21 side came on 4 September 2009, as he featured the full 90 minutes in a 2–0 win over Poland for the 2011 UEFA European Championship qualifiers at the Estadio Carlos Tartiere, providing the assist for Joselu's goal.[8]
