Over the course of six seasons, he amassed Segunda División totals of 176 games and 49 goals, in representation of three clubs.
After making his professional debuts with Real Betis, scoring twice in 23 matches for an eventual La Liga relegation in the 1990–91 season, Loreto excelled at neighbours Córdoba CF in the third division (signing with the club in 1993), which prompted a return to the top flight with Real Zaragoza.
However, he was grossly unsettled at the Aragonese, and played one season in the second level, being crucial for CD Logroñés' promotion, on loan; at the season's end, he was released and spent a further four years in the third category, with Córdoba and Cádiz CF.
Loreto's career revived in the following years, as he spent three seasons with Real Murcia, being relatively important as the side returned to the first division in 2003, netting four times in 26 matches. He would never play again in the top level, being released and ending his career in 2006 at the age of 35, after spells in the lower leagues.
