Fernando Vega Torres (born 3 July 1984) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a left back.

Club career[edit]

Born in Arahal, Province of Seville, Vega started his career with Sevilla FC, playing two full seasons for its B-team in the third division. In 2005–06 he represented modest Lorca Deportiva CF in the second level, with the side eventually finishing fifth but being relegated the campaign after his departure.

In July 2006, Vega joined Real Betis on a free transfer, and eventually became first-choice at the Andalusia club in his first season after ousting veteran Enrique Romero. He appeared in 31 La Liga matches apiece in the following two years, and his team would be relegated in the second; he made his debut in the Spanish top flight on 26 August 2006, coming on as a late substitute in a 1–2 away loss against Valencia CF.[1]

On 31 August 2011, after only participating in six league games (out of 42) as the Verdiblancos returned to the top tier after a two-year absence, Vega was released even though he had a contract running until June 2014. In early January 2012, following an unsuccessful trial with England's Portsmouth,[2] he signed for neighbouring Recreativo de Huelva in division two.[3]

On 31 August 2015, after suffering relegation with Recre, Vega moved to CD Lugo also in the second division.[4]
