Born in San Cristóbal de La Laguna, Canary Islands, and brought through the ranks of local CD Tenerife, Ayoze made his debuts with the first team in 1999–2000. In the 2003 summer, after just one full season in the second division, he joined La Liga side Racing de Santander, where he was relatively used as a defender or midfielder in his first three seasons (with a loan to soon-to-be-extinct Ciudad de Murcia in between).
In July 2008, Ayoze signed a three-year contract with RCD Mallorca, replacing Sevilla FC-bound Fernando Navarro. During his first year he started as backup to another newly signed, Enrique Corrales, but finished in the starting XI.
