Pol Valentín completes Owls switch

27 July 2023

The Owls have signed Spanish defender Pol Valentín from Sporting Gijón on a permanent transfer for an undisclosed fee.

The 26-year-old becomes our fourth new recruit of the summer, following Reece James, Juan Delgado and Ashley Fletcher through the Hillsborough doors.

Valentín, born in Catalonia, is a dynamic right-back with over 150 senior appearances to his name in Spanish football.

He was first on the radar of new Owls boss Xisco as a youth player at Gimnàstic de Tarragona when the two were on the books of ‘Nastic’.


Valentín has since gone on to represent Pobla Mafumet, Valencia B, Fuenlabrada and most recently Sporting Gijon in his homeland.

Xisco told “Pol is a very good talent, he’s a young guy, he’s one of the important players we now have in our squad.

“He has very good intensity. I know a lot about Pol, not only his capacity as a footballer but a personality as well and this is very good.

“This is important because I know exactly what he can give to the team. He was with me when he was very young with Gimnàstic and I know how he has progressed. I have followed his career and how he has been working in Spain.

“He is a good, young player who can do very good things for Sheffield Wednesday.”

Welcome to Wednesday, Pol!
