Sergi Gómez Solà (born 28 March 1992) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Celta de Vigo as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Barcelona[edit]

Gómez in action for Barcelona B.

Born in Arenys de Mar, Barcelona, Catalonia, Gómez arrived in FC Barcelona's youth academy at the age of 14. Even though he appeared in only three Segunda División B games for the B-side in the 2009–10 season, he would later play an essential role in their Segunda División successful promotion play-offs, after injury to fellow youth graduate Andreu Fontàs.[1]

On 13 August 2010, as first-team manager Pep Guardiola provided Barça's Spanish internationals with needed rest, Gómez was included in the nineteen-man squad to face Sevilla FC in the first leg of the 2010 edition of the Supercopa de España. He made his competitive debut in that game, a 1–3 away loss, playing the full ninety minutes.[2][3][4]

During his spell at the Camp Nou, however, Gómez was exclusively associated to the youth teams and the reserves.[5][6]

Celta[edit]

On 1 July 2014, free agent Gómez signed a three-year contract with Celta de Vigo.[7] He made his La Liga debut on 13 September when he came as a 75th-minute substitute in a 2–2 home draw to Real Sociedad,[8] and he finished his first season with 22 games to help to a final eighth position.
