José Edgar Andrade Costa (born 14 April 1987) is a Portuguese footballer who plays for C.S. Marítimo as a forward or winger.

Football career[edit]

Born in Câmara de Lobos, Madeira, Costa finished his football formation with local C.F. União. He made his senior debut with the club in 2006, and played with it for three third division seasons.

In the summer of 2009, Costa joined neighbouring C.D. Nacional, appearing in 14 games in his first season in the Primeira Liga (nine as a substitute) and scoring two goals[1][2] as the team finished in seventh position. His debut in the competition came on 12 September 2009, playing 25 minutes in a 0–2 away loss against Rio Ave FC.[3]

In January 2012, Costa spent a week on trial at West Ham United,[4] but nothing came of it. Released by Nacional in June of the following year, he signed for Moreirense F.C. in the second level, and subsequently spent several campaigns in the Portuguese top tier with C.S. Marítimo, where he was named captain before the start of 2016–17.[5]
