Vítor Hugo Gomes da Silva (born 25 December 1987 in Vila do Conde), known as Gomes, is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for C.D. Aves as a defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]

A product of hometown Rio Ave FC's youth system, Gomes first appeared with the first team on 19 March 2006, starting in a 0–1 home loss against S.L. Benfica.[1] In late January 2008, he began an unsuccessful loan spell at Serie A's Cagliari Calcio, making no appearances and returning to Rio Ave in July; during that season, he also played 13 matches (12 starts) as the Vila do Conde club returned to the Primeira Liga after an absence of two years.

In the following top flight campaigns, Gomes was regularly used by Rio Ave. He scored his first goals in 2009–10, against C.D. Nacional (2–0, home)[2] and S.C. Olhanense (1–5 defeat, also at home).[3]

In January 2013, Gomes joined a host of compatriots at Videoton FC, with the Hungarians making the deal permanent in early June.[4] Two years later, he was loaned to Balıkesirspor in the Turkish Süper Lig by Moreirense FC.[5][6]

International career[edit]

Gomes was a member of the Portugal under-20 squad at the 2007 FIFA World Cup.[7] Later that year, in August, he received his first callup to the under-21s.[8]

Personal life[edit]

Gomes' older brother, José, was also a footballer. A defender, he represented several clubs, and the pair shared teams in Rio Ave (2005–06, 2009–12).[9]
