Football career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Born in Madrid, Velayos arrived in Real Madrid's youth system at the age of ten. In 2006, he helped the Juvenil team win the Champions Cup of the category, appearing in 34 games and playing alongside Alberto Lora.

Velayos made his senior debuts in the 2006–07 season, playing nine Segunda División matches for Real Madrid Castilla as the reserves were relegated.[1] His first appearance as a professional took place on 14 January 2007, as he came on as a second-half substitute in a 0–1 away loss against UD Almería.[2]

In the summer of 2010, Velayos joined Getafe CF's reserves, competing in Segunda División B and helping the team retain their newly found division status.


On 28 July 2011, Velayos signed a two-year contract – with an option for a third – with Romanian club FC Brașov.[3] In the 2013 summer he moved teams but stayed in Liga I, joining CFR Cluj.
