The 21-year-old came through the Barcelona academy and made his debut for the club in the Copa Del Rey. However, he then joined Reus Deportiu and Córdoba before being signed by Valencia this summer.
Valencia don’t think Carbonell is ready for their first-team and have sent the midfielder on loan to Fortuna Sittard for the season.
The Spaniard told the Fortuna website, “I can’t wait to join the group. I would like to prove myself and be of value to Fortuna Sittard.”
Carbonell is Fortuna’s fifth summer signing after Patrik Raitanen, Adnan Ugur, Rasmus Karjalainen and Felix Passlack.
