Born in Minas de Ríotinto, Province of Huelva, José Carlos grew in Sevilla FC's youth system, making his first-team debut on 15 February 2009 as he played two minutes in a 2–0 away win against RCD Espanyol. He added five more the following week, also in La Liga, a 1–0 home success over Atlético Madrid.
On 3 April 2010, as a second-half substitute, José Carlos scored his first league goal for Sevilla (after two in the season's Copa del Rey against CF Atlético Ciudad, in a 5–1 home win), in the club's 3–0 home defeat of CD Tenerife.
With the arrival of new coach Gregorio Manzano, José Carlos fell out favour and was sent on loan to FC Cartagena in the second division, until June 2011. Late into that month he agreed on terms with AEK Athens FC, signing a one-year deal with the Greek club and reuniting at the team with former Sevilla boss (main squad and reserves) Manuel Jiménez, as well as teammate Cala.
José Carlos scored his first competitive goal for AEK against FC Dinamo Tbilisi in a UEFA Europa League qualifier, the game's only in a home fixture. He added a second in the same competition against SK Sturm Graz – group stage 1–2 home loss – as the team only earned three points in six games.
