Filipe Joaquim Melo Silva (born 3 November 1989), known as Melo, is a Portuguese footballer who plays for G.D. Chaves as a defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Portugal[edit]

Born in Santa Maria de Lamas, Aveiro District, Melo kicked off his career with local C.F. União de Lamas after joining their youth system in 1998. He continued competing in the lower leagues until the age of 21, successively representing A.A. Avanca and S.C. Espinho, both while on loan from S.C. Beira-Mar, who also ceded him to F.C. Arouca where he made his professional debut in 2011–12,[2][3] scoring his only goal of the season in a 1−0 Segunda Liga win against C.D. Santa Clara on 22 January 2012.[4]

In the summer of 2012, free agent Melo signed a one-year contract with Associação Naval 1º de Maio also in the second level.[3] For 2013–14, he joined fellow league side Moreirense F.C. alongside Diogo Cunha and Jorge Pires.[5] On 27 November 2013, in a 0−2 loss at C.D. Aves, he was sent off in the 71st minute for fouling Pedro Pereira,[6] being again redcarded in a goalless draw against S.C. Covilhã the following month.[7] His first goal of the campaign came in a 7−1 away victory over C.D. Trofense on 16 January 2014,[8] and he would score only one more[9] in 35 games in his first year as the team returned to the Primeira Liga after a one-year absence;[10] he was also awarded captaincy during this timeframe.[11]

Sheffield Wednesday[edit]

On 2 February 2015, Melo signed a three-year deal with English Championship club Sheffield Wednesday for an undisclosed fee,[11] joining compatriots Carlos Carvalhal (coach), Lucas João, Marco Matias and José Semedo.[12] He made his debut eight days later, in a 1−2 away defeat against Ipswich Town where he came on as a 58th-minute substitute for Sam Hutchinson.[13]

In November 2015, it was announced that Melo had been ruled out for the rest of the season after undergoing knee surgery.[14]
