Alfredo Ortuño Martínez (born 21 January 1991) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Cádiz CF on loan from UD Las Palmas as a forward.

Club career

Born in Yecla, Region of Murcia, Ortuño graduated from Albacete Balompié's youth setup. On 20 December 2008, while still a junior, he played his first match as a professional, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 0–3 away loss against UD Las Palmas for the Segunda División championship.[1]

In the 2010 summer, Ortuño was definitely promoted to the main squad, but appeared rarely as the Castilla-La Mancha club dropped down a level. On 11 July 2011, he moved to Getafe CF B in Segunda División B,[2] and continued to compete in that level in the following seasons, representing Levante UD B[3] and La Hoya Lorca CF.[4]

Ortuño joined Granada CF from La Liga on 17 January 2014, being immediately loaned to Girona FC.[5] He scored his first professional goal on the 25th, netting his team's only in a 1–1 home draw against SD Eibar;[6] he finished the campaign as club top scorer alongside Gerard Bordas, as the Catalans narrowly avoided relegation from the second level.

On 28 July 2014, Ortuño signed a new deal with Granada running until 2018.[7] He played his first game in the main category of Spanish football on 23 August, featuring 45 minutes in a 2–1 home win over Deportivo de La Coruña.[8]

On 16 January 2015, Ortuño was loaned to Las Palmas until June.[9] After the club's promotion to the top division, he was bought outright for 1 million, signing a contract until 2019[10] but being loaned to Real Zaragoza in the second tier on 21 July.[11]

Personal life

Ortuño's younger brother, Juan Tomás, is also a footballer and a forward. He too was brought up at Albacete.[12][13]
