Alejandro 'Álex' Gálvez Jimena (born 6 June 1989) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for SD Eibar as a central defender or a defensive midfielder.


Early career

Born in Granada, Andalusia, Gálvez played youth football for Albacete Balompié and Villarreal CF, being loaned by the latter to farm team CD Onda in Tercera División in what was his senior debut.

In the following two seasons, he played in Segunda División B with CF Villanovense and Sporting de Gijón's reserves, being relegated on both occasions but reinstated in 2010–11.

Sporting Gijón

On 13 December 2011, Gálvez made his debut with Sporting's main squad, in a Copa del Rey match against RCD Mallorca (1–0 away win, 1–2 aggregate loss). On 15 January of the following year, again as a starter and a stopper, he made his first La Liga appearance for the Asturians, scoring the first goal of the game in an eventual 2–1 home triumph over Málaga CF.

Rayo Vallecano

On 18 July 2012, Gálvez agreed to terms with Rayo Vallecano on a two-year deal. He scored his first official goal for his new team on 20 October 2013, netting from a 30-meter free kick for the game's only at UD Almería.

In late May 2013, the Madrid outskirts club rejected a €2 million offer from Borussia Dortmund.

Werder Bremen

On 13 May 2014, after consecutively helping Rayo retain its top flight status, free agent Gálvez signed a three-year contract with SV Werder Bremen in Germany. For most of the first half of his first season he was deployed in defensive midfield by coach Robin Dutt, but under the former's successor Viktor Skrypnyk he became a constant in the centre of defence, until injuries limited him to five appearances from January–May 2015.

Continuing injury problems over the summer break proved detrimental to pre-season training for Gálvez, as he was mostly used as a backup for Assani Lukimya at the beginning of the 2015–16 campaign.


On 3 August 2016, Gálvez agreed to a three-year deal with SD Eibar in the Spanish top division.
