Born and raised in Alicante, Spain the left-footed midfielder joined Villarreal CF and went on to represent Spain at Under-Seventeen, making his debut on 14th November 2013 and scoring once in six appearances and also made three appearances at Under-Eighteen after first playing for them on 4th February 2014. Like Ronaldo and Romario Vieira he is also qualified to represent Guinea-Bissau. He made his debut for the Villarreal B team on 3rd November 2013, when still only sixteen in the Segunda Division B - Grupo III, all-be-it for just one minute, in a 2-0 away win at Ontinyent CF. It was to be his only game at that level. He joined Liverpool on 4th September 2014 and there were high hopes by both the player and club for his success. Especially when he trained with the Liverpool first team squad both at the Bernabeu and at Melwood under Brendan Rogers. After eight years with Villarreal it was hard to adjust to the higher level at Anfield. He was given two substitute appearances for the Liverpool Under-Twenty-Three side, the first being with twenty-three minutes to go in a 1-2 defeat at Manchester United on 26th January 2015 and then for the Under-Eighteens four days later in a 2-3, after extra-time defeat by Birmingham City in the F.A. Youth Cup, in which he played four minutes. But he gradually started to get more time with the Under -Twenty-Threes with thirteen in 2015-16 and five in 2016-17 and in those seasons he started ten, came on as a substitute in ten and sat unused in five more. In that time there was a change of coaches and a few injury problems which delayed his progress. The 2016-17 season was particularly unlucky as in the second game of the season he had knee ligament problems which saw him sidelined until Christmas and then he had to contend with first-team players also needing game time, particularly those returning after injury. So with little chance of elevation to the first team, Gomes was released at the end of that season. He was signed on a free transfer by Leeds United on 27th June 2017 on a three year contract. He made his debut in the 4-1 home win over Port Vale in the First Round of the League Cup on 9th August 2017 as a seventieth minute substitute for Luke Ayling. He started in the next Round in a 5-1 home win over Newport County and played the full game on 22nd August 2017. He was also an unused substitute in the following round at Burnley, on 19th September 2017, but that was as close as he got to further games in the first team. He spent his time with the Under-Twenty-Threes, scoring twice in fifteen starts and one game from the bench. The goals came firstly in a 2-3 defeat at Huddersfield Town on 23rd October 2017, when he got the second Leeds goal, and then on 23rd March 2018 in a 3-0 home win over Cardiff City, when he scored the third goal from the penalty spot. Once more he was seen as not being likely to make the first team on any permanent basis as Leeds sold him to French Ligue 2 side FC Sochaux-Montbeliard in a permanent move on 11th June 2018 even nthough he still had two years left on his contract. After three games on the bench he was given a full game on 14th August 2018 in a penalty shoot out home League win over Stade Brest 29 in the League Cup, This proved to be the start he needed and after nine League games he had started four, in which he played three full games, twice been a substitute and three times, as already mentioned, been unused.
