Andrés Eduardo Fernández Moreno, simply known as Andrés (born 17 December 1986 in Murcia), is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for F.C. Porto in Portugal as a goalkeeper.

He spent most of his career with Osasuna, making his first-team debut in 2007 and going on to appear in 115 official games.

Football career[edit]

Osasuna[edit]

After one year spent with RCD Mallorca's reserves, Andrés was promoted to CA Osasuna's first team for 2007–08 and played once during that season, in a 0–2 La Liga away loss against UD Almería on 21 October 2007, as starter Ricardo was suspended and Juan Elía was sent off in the 50th minute.[1] For the following years he continued to be third-choice, as well as the undisputed starter at the B-side in the third division of Spanish football.

In mid-July 2010, after consecutively helping the Navarrese's reserves retain its top flight status but failing to move up the first team's pecking order, Andrés joined second level club SD Huesca, on loan. He returned for 2011–12 as Asier Riesgo's backup – 39-year-old Ricardo was still on the roster – replacing the latter due to injury during the first half of a 0–0 draw at Atlético Madrid[2] and eventually finishing the campaign as first-choice, appearing in all 38 league games and conceding 61 goals.

Porto[edit]

On 30 July 2014 Fernández signed a four-year contract with F.C. Porto, with the buy-out clause being set at 30 million. He became the fifth Spaniard to join the Portuguese club after compatriot Julen Lopetegui took over two months earlier.[3]
