Barça B goalkeeper, Jokin Ezkieta, was called up to train with the first team this Thursday to cover the loss of Jasper Cillessen. After the Dutch stopper suffering a rib injury, Ezkieta is the man expected to take over the role of reserve keeper until Jasper has recovered.

Ernesto Valverde asked for Ezkieta to join in training alongside the rest of the team as they prepare for the contest against Valladolid this weekend. It wasn't the first time the young keeper has trained with the first team squad as he did so on the US tour as well as for the Joan Gamper Trophy match.

Cillessen isn't the only player sitting on the injury table. Carles Aleña, Denis Suarez and Sergi Samper are all out for the match against Valladolid.
