Born in Puerto Ordaz, Medina was a Mineros de Guayana youth graduate. He made his first team – and Primera División – debut on 20 March 2016, aged just 16, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 1–0 away win against Deportivo JBL.[1]

Medina scored his first goal on 27 January 2018, netting the game's only in an away defeat of Deportivo Anzoátegui.[2] On 21 June, he moved abroad and joined Albacete Balompié, being initially assigned to the reserves in Tercera División.[3]

On 18 June 2019, after scoring 12 goals for Alba's B-team, Medina was loaned to Segunda División B side Marbella FC, for one year.[4] On 27 July of the following year, he moved to fellow third division side Recreativo de Huelva also in a temporary deal.[5]
