Luís Carlos Ramos Martins (born 10 June 1992) is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for C.S. Marítimo on loan from Spanish club Granada CF as a left back.

Club career[edit]

Born in Lamego, Viseu District, Martins was promoted to S.L. Benfica's first team for the 2011–12 season. He made his official debut for the club on 2 November 2011, starting in a UEFA Champions League group stage game against FC Basel and being replaced at the hour-mark of the 1–1 home draw by Miguel Vítor.[1]

Martins started the 2012–13 campaign with Benfica's reserves, in the second division. On 9 January 2013, however, he signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with Gil Vicente F.C. in the Primeira Liga.[2]

On 1 September 2014, Martins agreed to a four-year deal with Granada CF from Spain, for an undisclosed fee.[3] He played his first game in La Liga on the 27th, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 0–6 away loss to FC Barcelona.[4]

On 24 August 2015, Martins was loaned to Segunda División side CA Osasuna, for one year.[5] Late into the 2017 January transfer window, after only 73 minutes of action upon his return to the Estadio Nuevo Los Cármenes,[6] he joined C.S. Marítimo on a two-year loan.[7]

International career[edit]

Martins was picked by Portugal under-20 coach Ilídio Vale for the 2011 FIFA World Cup in Colombia, helping the national team finish second to Brazil.[8]
