Football career

Born in Lisbon, Santos played youth football with three clubs, including Casa Pia A.C. from ages 13-19. He spent his first seasons as a senior in the lower leagues, scoring a career-best 17 goals in the 2009–10 season to help the team promote to the third division.

Subsequently, Santos moved to the professionals after signing with Leixões S.C. from the Segunda Liga. In his second year at the Estádio do Mar, he started in 23 of his 27 appearances (four goals) and the side finished in 11th position.

In the 2012 summer, Santos joined Vitória de Setúbal, making his debut in the Primeira Liga on 19 August of that year by coming as a 68th-minute substitute in a 2–2 away draw against C.D. Nacional. His first goal in the league arrived on 4 November, when he played 79 minutes and helped the hosts defeat Sporting Clube de Portugal 2–1.

Santos moved to S.C. Braga also in the top level in the 2014 off-season, but split his debut campaign between FC Astra Giurgiu and Rio Ave FC, always on loan. After returning to his parent club, he helped to consecutive fourth-place finishes and scored 12 goals combined in the process; on 22 May 2016, he replaced Josué for the last minutes of regulation time in the final of the Taça de Portugal (2–2 draw), and converted his penalty shootout in a 4–2 triumph at the Estádio Nacional.

On 7 August 2017, 29-year-old Santos signed for Major League Soccer club Columbus Crew SC as a designated player.
