He started his career with Tenerife, but was loaned several times to lower league teams until the end of his contract. In 2009, he moved to the Scottish Premier League with Hearts, where he remained three years.

Born in San Cristóbal de La Laguna, Province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Santana began his professional career at local CD Tenerife, signing in 2002 with its youth system. Early on, he was loaned to Tercera División sides Atlético Arona CF and AD Laguna, in order to gain experience.

Suso played one full season with Tenerife in Segunda División, but opportunities continued to be limited for him in the main squad and another two loan spells ensued, now with Segunda División B teams CD San Isidro and UD Fuerteventura. With the former he finished as top scorer in the 2008–09 campaign, with nine goals from the right side of midfield, although the club would be relegated for financial problems.

Suso's performances caught the eye of Hearts manager Csaba László, who signed him on a free transfer from Tenerife on 30 June 2009. He got off to a good start at Tynecastle Stadium, playing in every pre-season game and particularly impressing in friendlies against Bolton Wanderers (where he set up the only goal of the match) and Sunderland, putting in Man of the match performances.

However, in the Scottish Premier League, Santana's performances were somewhat erratic: during Hearts' 2–2 draw with St Johnstone, he was replaced after an alleged spitting incident. He improved from there onwards, again being named man of the match in the side's 1–0 win over Kilmarnock on 15 September 2009; he scored his first goal for the club five days later, opening the scoresheet in a 1–2 defeat against Celtic at Celtic Park, with a long-range shot.

Suso's second goal for Hearts came a week later, the second in a 2–1 win over Hamilton Academical. He also netted against eventual champions Rangers in a 1–4 home loss, from a volley.

Suso's second season in Scotland was hit by injuries, and he never really managed to get a consistent run together, also having to undergo knee surgery in late April 2011. After returning to full fitness, he began appearing for Hearts as a substitute. On 18 March 2012 he scored his second goal of the 2011–12 season, netting in the 90th minute of a 2–0 derby win against Hibernian; he also helped the team win the season's Scottish Cup, but left in early July.

Return to Tenerife

Santana returned to his native Canary Islands and Tenerife on 6 July 2012. He scored five goals in his first season in his second stint, helping the club return to the second level after one year out.
