Club careerEdit

His first professional team was Carabobo FC, in which he didn't play too much due to his young age. Then he moved to Unión Atlético Maracaibo from which he exit after personal problems with the team. He signed with Deportivo Táchira on 2008, having more action and gaining more recognition to the point of being signed by Club Atlético Huracán from Argentina only to be sent back after no official matches with the team because the foreign spots in the team were already full.

In August 2011 Del Valle signed with AJ Auxerre, becoming the first Venezuelan player in Ligue 1.

Following relegation in the 2011-12 season, he moved from Auxerre on loan to the Portuguese Primeira Liga side Rio Ave on 12 July 2012.
