He played a total of 19 games for the club, and scored his first goal in professional football on 8 May, in a 2–0 win over Oriental. Capucho led Varzim to a ninth place finish in the league.
de Freitas signed a two-year contract with EFL League One club Port Vale in July 2016. Manager Bruno Ribeiro compared de Freitas to himself as a player, and said his versatility made him a key player for the "Valiants". He remained a part of the first team after Michael Brown succeeded Ribeiro as manager in December, before being sidelined for six weeks with a groin injury picked up in February.
He was called up to play for the France under-20 team at the Jeux de la Francophonie; France did not qualify for the knockout stages after losing 3–0 to Congo in the group stage.
Speaking in July 2016, de Freitas described himself as a "fighter". He can play across the midfield, and is also able to play at left-back.
