Club careerEdit

Born in Mafamude, Vila Nova de Gaia to Brazilian footballer Niromar Martins Campos (who played several years in Portugal in the same position), Martins spent most of his youth career at FC Porto.[2] He played one season with their reserves in the Segunda Liga, his first match in the competition occurring on 12 August 2012 when he featured 86 minutes in a 2–2 away draw against C.D. Tondela.[3]

On 27 August 2013, free agent Martins signed with C.D. Aves also in the second division.[4] He spent the 2014–15 campaign with fellow league side S.C. Braga B, scoring a career-best 14 goals to help to a final 21st position (still above the relegation zone);[5] it was with the first team of the latter that he first appeared in the Primeira Liga, coming on as a late substitute in the 2–0 home victory over F.C. Arouca on 15 February 2015.[6]

Martins was loaned to F.C. Paços de Ferreira prior to the start of 2015–16. After featuring sparingly,[7] he joined G.D. Chaves in the same situation,[8] netting six times in the league including once in a 2–2 home draw to Sporting CP after a 30-meter chip that caught Rui Patrício off-guard.[9]

On 25 October 2017, Martins renewed his contract with Braga until 2022, with the new buyout clause being set at 25 million.[10] He contributed five goals from 27 appearances – ten starts – during the season, which qualified to the UEFA Europa League after the fourth-place finish.[11]

On 22 June 2019, still owned by Braga, Martins moved to newly promoted F.C. Famalicão for the upcoming top-flight campaign.[12] He was top scorer for the sixth-placed team during his spell,[13] being sent off against Aves[14] and C.S. Marítimo.[15]

Martins was loaned to Al-Shabab FC on 25 September 2020, as the Saudi Professional League club was coached by his compatriot Pedro Caixinha.[16]

International careerEdit

All categories comprised, Martins won 28 caps for Portugal at youth level and scored five goals. His only for the under-21s came on 2 June 2013, when he started the 2–0 friendly defeat of Croatia held in Rio Maior.[17]
