Oier Sanjurjo Maté (born 25 May 1986 in Estella-Lizarra, Navarre), known simply as Oier, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for CA Osasuna as a defender or a defensive midfielder.

Football career[edit]

A product of hometown CD Izarra's youth ranks, Oier completed his formation at neighbouring CA Osasuna. He made his La Liga debut on 24 September 2008 in a game against Deportivo de La Coruña, taking over for Nacho Monreal in the tenth minute of an eventual 0–0 home draw.[1] Although he spent most of the season with the B-team, he still managed a further nine league appearances.

In his first full professional campaign, Oier started the first five matches at right back, as starter César Azpilicueta was away on international duty.[2] He then found his chances limited after the latter's return, and was subsequently loaned to RC Celta de Vigo on 11 July 2011.[3]

After being a starter for the Galicians as the season ended in promotion, Oier returned to Osasuna and renewed his contract until 2015.[4] He scored two goals in 28 games in 2012–13,[5][6] but the club returned to Segunda División after a 14-year stay.
