Galway United are delighted to announce the signing of Spanish born centre-half Diego Portilla.
Portilla, who primarily plays as a central defender but can also operate as a full-back, signs for United following a spell at Spanish Tercera Division outfit CD Atletico Paso.
Diego formerly of Racing Santander also has experience in UEFA competition with new signing Manu Dimas and is delighted to be on board.
The 27-year-old, who was born in Santander, previously plied his trade for the well known Spanish club Racing Santander, Cypriot side Paeek, CD Tenerife, Lorca FC, Mensajero and Laredo before moving to Atletico Paso last July.
The physically strong defender has gained experience alongside new signing Manu Dimas in UEFA European competition during his spell at the Gibraltarian club Europa FC in the 2019 UEFA Europa League qualifying.
Portilla already loves the Galway weather after exploring with fellow Spaniard Dimas.
