Vítor was born in Torres Vedras. Having been promoted from S.L. Benfica's junior squad for the 2007–08 season he made his debut for the first team in August 2007, appearing in both the Primeira Liga, against Vitória de Guimarães, and the UEFA Champions League, facing F.C. Copenhagen in the third qualifying round; this was because habitual starters Luisão and David Luiz were sidelined with injuries.
Like Romeu Ribeiro, Vítor was loaned to second division side C.D. Aves in January 2008 until the end of the season. Subsequently he returned to Benfica, being relatively used in his first full campaign.
In early July 2010, Vítor joined English Championship club Leicester City in a season-long loan, teaming up with compatriots Moreno and manager Paulo Sousa. He made his debut in a 2–1 League Cup win over Portsmouth at Fratton Park on 21 September; on 6 November, he scored his first professional goal, heading from a Martyn Waghorn free kick after 18 minutes, in a 2–0 win against Barnsley at Oakwell.
On 19 December 2010, Vítor suffered a pulled hamstring in a 0–3 away defeat against Ipswich Town, being sidelined for three months. He netted twice on his return, a 3–0 success at Scunthorpe United on 12 March 2011.
Vítor subsequently returned to Benfica, being completely ostracized by manager Jorge Jesus – as practically all Portuguese players – and even being demoted to the B-team. After he refused to renew his contract, he left as a free agent in late May 2013.
On 24 June 2013, Vítor signed with Greek club PAOK FC. He scored his first goal for his new team – also the side's first in the new season – on 17 August, netting through a header in a 3–0 home win over Skoda Xanthi FC.
Vítor was first-choice during his spell in Thessaloniki, scoring two goals in 33 games in the 2014–15 campaign to help his team finish third. On 10 June 2016, it was announced he would be released as his contract would not be renewed.
Hapoel Be'er Sheva
On 1 July 2016, free agent Vítor signed a three-year contract with Israeli Premier League champions Hapoel Be'er Sheva FC, for an undisclosed fee. On 27 July 2016, Vitor made his debut on the away draw over Olympiacos in the Champions League third qualifying round. he scored his first goal with Beer Sheva on 15 September, in a 2–0 away win over Inter Milan in the Europa League. On 15 October he scoring two goals in victory 5-0 over Maccabi Petah Tikva.
