Club careerEdit

Born in Zamora, Castile and León, Salvador represented Zamora CF as a youth. On 7 April 2012, aged only 17, he made his senior debut by starting in a 2–0 home win against Sestao River for the Segunda División B championship.

Salvador was promoted to the first team ahead of the 2012–13 season, and began to appear more regularly in the following campaigns. He scored his first senior goal on 5 January 2014, netting the equalizer in a 1–1 home draw against CD Guijuelo.[1]

On 31 July 2015, after Zamora's relegation, Salvador joined fellow third-tier club CD Lealtad.[2] However, Zamora announced that they retained the player seven days later,[3] but he signed for Sestao on 1 September after rescinding his contract.[4]

On 28 July 2016 Salvador moved to Sporting de Gijón, being initially assigned to the reserves in Tercera División.[5] He made his first team debut on 21 December, coming on as a late substitute for Nacho Cases in a 1–3 away loss against SD Eibar for the season's Copa del Rey.[6]

Salvador was definitely promoted to the main squad in Segunda División ahead of the 2018–19 season, after agreeing to a new three-year contract.[7] He scored his first professional goal on 3 March 2019, netting the opener in a 2–1 away success over CD Numancia.

On 7 June 2021, Salvador signed a three-year deal with SD Huesca also in the second division.[8]
