Club careerEdit

Born in Burela, Province of Lugo, Fernández was a youth product of neighbouring Deportivo de La Coruña. He made his debut as a senior with the reserves, representing them in Tercera División and scoring 21 goals in the 2012–13 season.[1]

Fernández made his official debut for the Galicians' first team on 17 August 2013, starting in a 1–0 away win over UD Las Palmas for the Segunda División championship.[2] He scored his first goal in the competition on 3 November, netting his team's last in a 2–0 home victory against Real Madrid Castilla.[3]

Fernández appeared in 28 matches and scored five goals as Depor returned to La Liga at the first attempt. On 18 July 2014, he was loaned to neighbouring second level club CD Lugo in a season-long deal;[4] still owned by the former, he joined fellow league team SD Huesca in the following campaign.

On 21 July 2016, Fernández terminated his contract with Deportivo[5] and signed a two-year deal with AD Alcorcón just hours later.[6] On 10 January of the following year, after being rarely used, he cut ties with the latter[7] and moved to the second tier with UCAM Murcia CF the following day.[8]

After suffering a knee injury, Fernández returned to Deportivo B on 1 September 2017 as a free agent.[9] He re-joined UCAM the following 31 July, now on a permanent contract.[10]

On 3 July 2019, Fernández signed a two-year deal with Super League Greece club Asteras Tripolis F.C. for an undisclosed fee.[11] On 7 June 2020, he netted through a free kick in the 2–1 away defeat of Athlitiki Enosi Larissa F.C. in the opening game of the playoffs, after an 80-day enforced COVID-19 break.[12]
