Nuno Luís Costa Santos (born 20 April 1973) is a Portuguese retired professional footballer who played as a goalkeeper.
Born in Setúbal, Santos made his professional debuts with his hometown club Vitória FC, also serving two loans with lowly teams (Caldas Sport Clube and C.D. Operário). His performances in the 1997–98 campaign attracted the attention of Leeds United, but he made no official appearances whatsoever for the Premier League side, returning to his country with S.L. Benfica.
During his stint in Lisbon, Santos was almost always only third-choice, and went on to also serve several loans, including in Spain's CD Badajoz, playing no games in the second level during his four-month spell. Released by Benfica in June 2004 after a season-long loan spell at Vitória he stabilized at C.D. Santa Clara – which he had already represented on loan from Benfica – starting in two of his three campaigns in the Azores.
After one year in North America, appearing for both the Rochester Raging Rhinos and Toronto FC, Santos returned to Portugal and played in slightly more than half of the league's matches for Gondomar SC, with the club, also in division two, being relegated. In the summer, he dropped down to the third tier and joined F.C. Arouca.
