Alefein "Alefe" Santos D'Abadia (born 1 March 1995) is a Brazilian footballer who plays as a winger for League Two club Yeovil Town.
Santos was born in São Paulo before moving to England when he was 12 years old.
Santos began his career at Stoke City as a schoolboy before joining Bristol Rovers on a two-year scholarship in the summer of 2011. The next season, he made his professional debut whilst still considered a youth player on 20 November 2012, in a 4–0 defeat to Port Vale in Football League Two, coming on as a substitute for Fabian Broghammer after 60 minutes.
He signed his professional contract with the club on 23 April 2013. Santos became a regular player in the Bristol Rovers first team in the 2013–14 season, playing 27 matches, including 23 in the league, but his team were relegated to the Football Conference. On 12 October 2013, he scored his only goal for Bristol Rovers, in a 1–1 league draw with Mansfield Town at Field Mill; he came on for Andy Bond after 72 minutes and scored the equaliser 12 minutes later.
He signed a two-year contract with the option of a third year at Derby County on 1 July 2014 after turning down a new contract with Bristol Rovers. He had previously been in discussions with Premier League club Hull City. Santos made his Derby debut on 26 August, replacing Johnny Russell for the last 20 minutes of a 1–0 League Cup victory over Charlton Athletic.
Having not made another appearance since his debut, on 9 January 2015 Santos went on a one-month loan to League One club Notts County, and made a total of 3 appearances.
On 10 November 2016, National League side Eastleigh announced that they had reached an agreement with Derby to sign Santos on a short-term loan until 2 January 2017. His loan was cut short after just 28 days, when Derby exercised their right to call him back from Eastleigh.
On 25 July 2017, following a successful trial period, Santos signed for League Two club Yeovil Town signing a two-year contract.
Santos describes himself as "a very direct player who likes to run at the full-back and get crosses in and create chances for the team". He stated that he considers football in Brazil to be easier than that of England, due to the physicality of the English game.As of match played 16 September 2017.
