Club career[edit]


Vadillo was born in Puerto Real, Province of Cádiz, and joined Real Betis' youth system at the age of 12. On 28 August 2011, he became the second youngest ever player to appear in a La Liga game, as he started in a 1–0 away win against Granada CF at the age of 16 years, 11 months and 16 days.[1] The previous season, he contributed with 14 matches (one goal) as the B-team narrowly avoided relegation from Segunda División B.

On 15 October 2011, Vadillo collided with Sergio Ramos in the early minutes of an eventual 1–4 loss at Real Madrid, being stretchered off and sidelined for several months with a torn cruciate ligament.[2] On 1 August 2014 he suffered the same injury, being sidelined for six months.[3]


On 18 August 2016, free agent Vadillo signed a one-year contract with Segunda División club SD Huesca.[4]
