Born in Bissau, Guinea-Bissau, Jorginho came through the youth ranks at Manchester City after signing at the age of 17. After agreeing to a one-year contract extension on 7 July 2015, he was limited to reserve team football.
In the very last minutes of the 2016 winter transfer window, Jorginho moved to Portugal and joined F.C. Arouca on a three-and-a-half-year deal. He made his Primeira Liga debut on 7 February, coming on as a 78th-minute substitute in a 2–1 away win against FC Porto.
On 17 December 2016, Jorginho scored a hat-trick in a 4–1 away triumph over Moreirense FC. In the following transfer window he was transferred to AS Saint-Étienne of the French Ligue 1, who loaned him six months later to G.D. Chaves in a season-long move after acquiring him on a permanent basis.
On 19 June 2018, Jorginho signed with Bulgarian club PFC CSKA Sofia on loan until the end of the campaign. One year later, he agreed to a permanent contract at PFC Ludogorets Razgrad of the same country.
