Club careerEdit

Born in Lagos, Algarve, Viana spent six years as a youth at Sporting CP. In June 2008 the 18-year-old was transferred to FC Porto as part of a deal involving Hélder Postiga,[1] with the northerners receiving 2.5 million whereas the Lisbon club retained 50% of his rights.[2] In the 2008–09 season, whilst still a junior, he made his debut with the first team, playing four Portuguese League Cup matches and totalling 55 minutes in two wins and two losses; his first appearance was against Vitória de Setúbal (2–1 home win), on 8 January 2009.[3]

On 17 June 2009, Viana moved on loan to VVV-Venlo in the Netherlands. He appeared in 23 Eredivisie games in his first year, helping the Limburg side finish in 12th position. In January 2011 he returned to Portugal and joined C.D. Aves of the second division, in the same situation.[4]

Viana signed with First Professional Football League (Bulgaria) club PFC Litex Lovech in June 2015,[5] after two years in the Primeira Liga with Gil Vicente FC.[6] In the summer of 2016 he joined PFC CSKA Sofia on a free transfer, after the former merged with the latter.

On 31 January 2017, Viana moved to C.F. Os Belenenses for an undisclosed fee.[7]
