Paredes was bought off by Deportivo Quito, where he played a few Copa Libertadores games and eventually ended up becoming Champions of the Ecuadorian Serie A in 2011, defeating Emelec in Home and Away finals.
Paredes, having impressed with his speed and ability, signed for Guayaquil side Barcelona for the 2013 Season. Typically playing as a winger at his last club, in Barcelona he was mainly used as a right fullback which gained him experience to be Ecuador's starting fullback for numerous occasions.
Granada CF & Watford
On 16 July 2014, it was confirmed that Paredes had moved to Watford from La Liga side Granada, with both sides owned by the same family. Paredes had only moved to Granada earlier in the summer, suggesting it was a move that was designed to benefit the Championship club. Subject to obtaining a work permit and gaining international clearance, he signed a five-year deal with Watford of the Championship.
Paredes made his International debut against Mexico on September 10, 2010, in a 2-1 away win for Ecuador, which was seen as an overdue merit as part of supporters of his former Club, Deportivo Cuenca.
