Born in Setúbal to a Cape Verdean father and a Portuguese mother, Vezo joined local Vitória Futebol Clube's youth system at the age of 11. He was promoted to the first team for the 2013–14 season and, on 18 August, made his top division debut, starting in a 1–3 home loss against F.C. Porto.
During his short spell, Vezo featured the full 90 minutes in all the league games he appeared in, save for the last five minutes of a 4–1 win at Vitória S.C. where he was sent off, and 34 against F.C. Arouca (1–0 home success) for the same reason.
On 4 November 2013, Vezo signed a four-year contract with La Liga club Valencia CF for a reported fee of €1.5 million, with the move being made effective in the January transfer window. He made his debut in the competition on 8 February 2014, playing the last nine minutes in a 5–0 home win over Real Betis; on the 23rd, profiting from suspension to compatriot Ricardo Costa, he played the full 90 minutes against Granada CF also at the Mestalla Stadium, and scored his first goal as a professional after netting from a free kick taken by Daniel Parejo to help the hosts come from behind in the 90th minute and win it 2–1, and become the club's youngest ever foreigner to score in the process.
Vezo earned his first cap for the Portugal under-21 side on 5 March 2014 – one month shy of his 20th birthday – playing the full 90 minutes in a 2–0 home win against Macedonia for the 2015 UEFA European Championship qualifiers. He scored his first goal in that level in the same competition, on 14 October, helping defeat the Netherlands 5–4 in the play-offs, in Paços de Ferreira (7–4 on aggregate).
