He spent most of his professional career with Mallorca since making his debut in 2004,[1] appearing in 189 competitive matches over eight La Liga seasons. He also played three years in England, with Wigan Athletic.

Club careerEdit


Born in Sa Pobla, Balearic Islands, Ramis was a product of local RCD Mallorca's youth system, having made his debut for the first team in 2003–04, against Albacete Balompié on 15 February 2004 (0–0 La Liga home draw).[2] After a loan at Real Valladolid from Segunda División in the 2005–06 season he developed as a player in 2007–08, scoring three league goals from a defensive position.[3][4][5]

On 29 January 2010, Ramis was linked with a move to Scottish giants Celtic, although no agreement could be reached between the two clubs.[6] He finished the campaign with 26 matches – and two red cards[7][8]– as the side finished fifth and qualified for the UEFA Europa League.

Wigan AthleticEdit

On 2 August 2012, Ramis signed for Wigan Athletic on a three-year contract after turning down an offer from fellow Premier League club West Ham United.[9] He made his official debut on the 19th, playing the full 90 minutes in a 0–2 home loss against Chelsea and conceding the penalty that resulted in the last goal for the visitors, scored by Frank Lampard.[10]

Ramis scored his first competitive goal for the Latics on 25 September 2012, a thunderous 20-yard strike after picking up the ball at the half-way line in a 4–1 away victory over West Ham United in the League Cup.[11] He found the net against the same opposition one month later, scoring from a left-footed volley in the 2–1 league home win.[12] He contributed 16 games and two goals in his debut season, but his team suffered relegation and he also endured a long spell on the sidelines due to a knee injury.[13]

In late January 2015, with Wigan still in the Football League Championship, Ramis had his contract cancelled by mutual consent.[14]

Levante and EibarEdit

Shortly after leaving Wigan, Ramis returned to his country's top flight and signed an 18-month deal with Levante UD.[15] He was released in June 2015, and moved to fellow league team SD Eibar on 20 July.[16]

On 20 July 2020, after struggling nearly the entire season with a knee injury, Ramis retired from football aged 35.[17]
