Sarmiento has spent most of his career in Argentina with Talleres de Córdoba, Olimpo and Argentinos Juniors. He had a brief spell on loan to Bulgarian team Litex Lovech and he spent the early part of the 2006–07 season on loan at English side Southampton. Sarmiento arrived at Southampton as a holding midfielder to organize the midfield but on 19 January 2007 he was released by Southampton, having only made four appearances for the club, three in the Football League Cup and one in the FA Cup.
For the next two seasons, Sarmiento was a fundamental part of Larissa squad, playing more than 60 games in total with the maroons, and being one of the key players in midfield.
