David Raya Career

Raya started his career in his country of birth, Spain, where he played both goalkeeping and outfield in futsal. After playing youth football at UE Cornellà, he then relocated to England and signed a scholarship with Blackburn Rovers in July 2012.

Hugo Fernández's move to Ewood Park two years prior sparked talks between the two clubs that resulted in a deal allowing UE Cornellà players to go on trial with Blackburn Rovers.

He advanced through the club's academy before committing to a professional deal on February 26, 2014. During the first half of the 2014–15 season, Raya spent four months on loan at Conference Premier club Southport, where he made 24 appearances and acquired his first senior experience.

He made two late-season Championship appearances upon his return to Ewood Park, and in April 2015, he agreed to a new three-year contract.

Raya was Rovers' backup goalkeeper behind Jason Steele despite only making 13 appearances in each of the 2015–16 and 2016–17 seasons, and he was a regular in the matchday squad.

After Rovers were demoted to League One at the conclusion of the 2016–17 season, Raya became the team's first-choice keeper. During the 2017–18 season, he made 47 appearances and assisted the team in gaining automatic promotion back to the Championship.

He made 46 appearances in a season of Championship consolidation while keeping his spot in 2018–19. Raya left Rovers in July 2019 after 108 games played for the team.

Raya signed a four-year deal with Championship team Brentford on July 6, 2019, for an undisclosed sum that was reportedly around £3 million.

Raya was nominated for Goalkeeper of the Year at the 2020 London Football Awards for his efforts during the first half of the 2019–20 season. He also shared the EFL Golden Glove trophy with Bartosz Biakowski for the season's 16 league clean sheets.

In a campaign that culminated in a 2-1 loss to West London rivals Fulham in the 2020 Championship play-off Final, Raya made 49 appearances.

Raya was not included in head coach Thomas Frank's matchday teams during the preseason and early part of the regular season in 2020–21 due to an injury and transfer rumors.

He reintegrated with two EFL Cup appearances, leading the club in both games and on October 2, 2020, he agreed to a new four-year contract.

Raya won a promotion medal for the 2020–21 campaign after 48 appearances, 17 shutouts, and a 2-0 Championship play-off victory over Swansea City.

Raya attempted 300 more passes throughout the season than any other Championship goalkeeper in his expanding position as a sweeper-keeper.

Raya was a regular in Premier League games to start the 2021–22 season, however on October 24, 2021, in a 2-1 loss to Leicester City, he suffered a posterior cruciate ligament injury.

On January 10, 2022, he started training outside again. Raya made his return to competitive match play with a start in a 4-1 FA Cup loss to Everton four days after a behind-closed-doors friendly appearance on February 1, 2022.

He appeared in 25 games and was consistently present through the end of the season, finishing in the middle of the pack.

Raya remained a constant in league games throughout the 2022–2023 campaign, and his efforts in a January 2023 without a loss (during which Brentford competed for a spot in Europe) earned him a nomination for Premier League Player of the Month.

In the same month, Raya turned down a second contract offer. During the 2022–23 campaign, he was a part of the club's executive team and a regular participant in league games.
