Tomás Mejías Osorio (born 30 January 1989) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Cypriot club AC Omonia.

Club career[edit]

Real Madrid[edit]

Mejías was born in Madrid.[4] In 2001, aged 12, he joined local Real Madrid's youth academy from neighbouring amateurs CD Coslada.[5] He made his debut with the reserves in the 2007–08 season, playing five games for them in Segunda División B.[6][7][8][9][10]

As first-team manager José Mourinho decided to rest Iker Casillas, Mejías was selected for a La Liga home match against Getafe CF on 10 May 2011.[11] He replaced another club youth graduate, Antonio Adán, for the last ten minutes of a 4–0 home win.[12]

Mejías was selected in a 20-man squad for the first match of the 2011–12 campaign, away to Real Zaragoza,[13] but eventually did not make the bench.[14] He contributed with 26 appearances in the following year, as the B's retained their Segunda División status.[15]

Middlesbrough[edit]

On 11 February 2014, Mejías joined Championship club Middlesbrough on loan until the end of the season.[16] He made his debut on 1 March, in a 1–0 away loss against Sheffield Wednesday.[17] It was his only appearance during the time of his loan, as he dislocated a finger in training and was sidelined for the rest of the campaign.[18]

The deal was made permanent on 4 July 2014, and Mejías signed a two-year contract.[19] On 28 October of the following year, he saved from Wayne Rooney and Ashley Young as his team won in a penalty shoot-out away to Manchester United in the fourth round of the League Cup, also keeping a clean sheet for 120 minutes.[20]

On 5 January 2017, Mejías was loaned to Rayo Vallecano until the end of the Spanish second level season.[21] At the end of the following campaign, he was released by Middlesbrough.[22]

Omonia[edit]

Mejías signed for Cypriot First Division club AC Omonia on 10 July 2018.[23]
