ENRIC VALLÉS: bio and profile

Born and raised in Barcelona, Enric was recruited and developed within FC Barcelona’s famous youth academy, La Masia.

The left midfielder, who can also play as a central attacking midfielder, spent nine years at Barça where he shared dressing rooms with players such as Bojan Krkic and Fran Merida.

During his time at the Catalan outfit, Enric won numerous titles and individual awards catching the eye of quality clubs in Spain (Real Madrid being one of them) and across Europe. NAC Breda eventually signed the midfielder as an 18-year-old, keeping the ‘Spanish Engelaar’ in the Netherlands until the summer of 2010.

Enric made his official debut for NAC Breda’s senior team on 28 November 2008 in the KNVB Cup game against GVVV when he came on as a substitute for Patrick Zwaanswijk. On 20 December 2008 Vallés made his first Eredivisie appearance against Vitesse.

In the summer of 2010, Enric came to the attention of Birmingham City boss Alex McLeish, who signed the Spaniard on a two-year deal. Enric featured strongly in the club’s pre-season tour of China, where he was in the starting line-up for two of the three matches. He made his official debut for the St. Andrews club on 26th August 2010 in a 3-2 Carling Cup victory against Rochdale.
