Born in Las Palmas, Viera finished his youth career with hometown's UD Las Palmas, where he earned the nickname Romário. He made his senior debuts with the reserve team, appearing in ten third division games in the 2008–09 season and suffering relegation; on 18 February 2010, he renewed his contract until June 2013.
Viera was definitely promoted to the main squad for 2010–11, as the team competed in the second level. He finished the campaign with 31 matches (26 starts) and six goals, including three in a 5–3 away win against FC Barcelona B on 15 May 2011, which all but certified the Canary Islands side's permanence.
In January 2012, amidst rumours of a transfer – Las Palmas inclusively had everything arranged with Granada CF but the deal eventually fell through – Viera assured he would stay with his club until the end of the season. He finished as the second-best top scorer in the squad at nine, only trailing another youth graduate, Vitolo, by one goal.
On 6 May 2012, one month before the Las Palmas season ended, Viera signed with La Liga's Valencia CF for five years and €2.5 million. He made his official debut against FC Barcelona, playing 13 minutes in a 0–1 away loss.
Viera scored his first goal in the top flight on 29 September 2012, closing the score in a 2–0 home win over Real Zaragoza. On 30 August of the following year, he was loaned to Madrid-based Rayo Vallecano in a season-long move without the option of making the deal permanent afterwards.
On 1 September 2014, Viera cut ties with the Che, immediately joining Standard Liège in Belgium. However, he only appeared in seven competitive matches, scoring in a 1–2 group stage loss at Feyenoord for the UEFA Europa League.
Return to Las Palmas
On 14 July 2015, Viera signed a three-year permanent deal with Las Palmas for €900,000.
