Javier “Javi” Galán Gil (born 19 November 1994) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Huesca.

Mainly a left-back, he can also play as a left winger.

Born in Badajoz, Extremadura, Galán represented CD San Roque (Badajoz), CP Don Bosco and CP Flecha Negra as a youth. On 20 June 2013, after scoring 12 goals for the club’s Juvenil A squad, he moved to CD Badajoz.

Galán made his senior debut on 15 September 2013, playing the last 30 minutes in a 1–0 home win against CD Solana for the Regional Preferente championship. He scored his first senior goal fourteen days later, netting the last in a 4–1 home routing of EF Emérita Augusta.

Galán helped the Blanquinegros in their promotion to Tercera División during his first campaign. On 9 July 2015 he joined Córdoba CF, being assigned to the reserves also in the fourth tier.

Galán made his professional debut on 12 October 2016, starting as a left back in a 2–1 Copa del Rey away win against Cádiz CF. He made his Segunda División debut on 4 December, starting in a 2–1 win at CF Reus Deportiu.
