New Town signing Álex Vallejo will arrive in England with good experience in Spanish football.
Álex was born in Vitoria-Gasteiz, in the Basque region in the north of Spain, on 16 January 1992.
His footballing journey began as a player in the Academy of La Liga side Deportivo Alavés, where he progressed through the age groups before making his debut for their second team on 20 August 2011, when he played in a 2-2 Segunda Division draw at Osasuna B.
As well as being capped by Spain up to Under-19 level, he also gained more senior experience soon after through a loan spell at third tier side Sestao River Club.
Vallejo made the permanent move to RCD Mallorca in 2012, initially playing for the B Team. He made 36 appearances during his first season, earning a chance for Mallorca’s senior side in November 2013 – starting in a 2-1 win over his former side Alavés in LaLiga2.
That was one of six appearances in his debut campaign, and he went on to spend five years with the Club, when he became a regular feature in the Spanish second division.
Álex moved across the division in the summer of 2017, joining Córdoba CF on a two-year contract. He was a regular player for his new side too, making 46 appearances across the course of the next two seasons.
Another move materialised last summer, keeping him at second tier level with CF Fuenlabrada. After 10 appearances, he departed the Club in January 2020.
