Nuno Miguel Pereira Reis (born 31 January 1991) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Sporting Clube de Portugal B as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Born in Murten, Switzerland to Portuguese immigrants, Reis joined Sporting Clube de Portugal's youth ranks in 2003 at the age of 12, from Fátima-based Associação Desportiva Recreativa Cultural Vasco da Gama. During his formative years with the Lisbon club he won eight titles (including five national championships),[1] going on to be part of the side's junior teams that conquered three consecutive leagues and being team captain during the last year; in addition, he was called up for two first-team games, against C.F. Os Belenenses and Atlético Madrid (the latter in the UEFA Europa League).

After graduating from Sporting's academy, Reis was loaned out to Cercle Brugge K.S.V. in Belgium, alongside teammate Renato Neto. In his first season in the Pro League he scored one goal in 32 games (all starts), as the club finished in ninth position.

On 29 January 2014, after one season with S.C. Olhanense – with which he made his top division debuts – and five months with Sporting B, Reis returned to Cercle Brugge, on loan for the remainder of the campaign.[2]

International career[edit]

Reis captained the Portuguese under-20 side to the second place at the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup, playing all the matches and minutes in Colombia.[3]

On 5 September 2011 he made his debut for the under-21s, coming on as a substitute for João Pereira in the 62nd minute of a 1–0 friendly win with France.
