Nuno Jorge Pereira da Silva Valente, OIH (-ptˈnunu vɐˈlẽt(ɨ); born 12 September 1974) is a retired Portuguese footballer who played as a left defender.

After settling with a club in his late 20's with F.C. Porto - he started out his career with Sporting, but never imposed there - he moved at 31 to England with Everton, where he finally retired after playing regularly in three out of four seasons.

A late bloomer in the international stage, Valente helped Portugal finish second in Euro 2004, a competition which was played in his country. He also participated in the 2006 World Cup.
