Born in Matosinhos, Porto District, Santos spent his early career in the third and fourth divisions, reaching the second level in 2004 with Varzim SC. Four years later he was signed by another club in that category, Azores' C.D. Santa Clara, starting in all league games during the season and scoring nine goals, including two braces.
In May 2010, after being again an undisputed starter with Santa Clara in the 2009–10 campaign, 30-year-old Santos signed a two-year contract with Primeira Liga club F.C. Paços de Ferreira. He appeared in 14 matches during his first year, totalling 430 minutes of action and failing to find the net.
