Watch: Marvin Park - from Tranmere to Real Madrid (& now Las Palmas)

Former Tranmere Rovers trainee Marvin Park continues to make exciting progress in Spanish football.

The 22-year-old winger was born to a Nigerian father and South Korean mother in Mallorca and has represented Spain at youth level.
At the age of nine he moved with his family to the United Kingdom, spending three years at Tranmere Rovers' youth academy on Merseyside, before returning to Spain and graduating from Real Madrid's iconic La Fábrica youth academy.

Park made his first team debut with Real Madrid two years ago and has been part of the senior squad ever since.

This season he's on loan at UD Las Palmas, fighting at the top of the LaLiga SmartBank for promotion to the top flight. And he has quickly impressed, featuring in seven Segunda games, scoring once and also providing an assist.

Here he talks about playing in England as a young child, how the experience has made his stronger both as a person and as a player, his visit to South Korea as a youngster and his dreams of one day visiting Nigeria.
