Héctor Verdés Ortega (born 24 June 1984) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a central defender.
Born in Villar del Arzobispo, Valencian Community, Verdés was a product of Valencia CF's youth system. After unsuccessfully appearing for them as a senior (never made it past the reserves in three full seasons), he served a loan with Xerez CD in the second division, appearing in exactly half of the matches as the Andalusians finished in 15th position; in summer 2008, he was released by his parent club.
For the 2008–09 campaign, Verdés moved to the third level, playing under young manager Luis Enrique at FC Barcelona B. However, after only one year, he returned to Valencia, spending an additional season with the reserve side – also in division three – which ended in relegation.
Verdés signed for Elche CF, also in his native region and the second tier, in July 2010. After three seasons of irregular playing time, featuring in 24 games in the first one and just 21 in the following two combined, mainly due to injuries, he moved to fellow league team AD Alcorcón.
On 29 June 2015, Verdés signed a two-year deal with Real Oviedo, newly promoted to the second division. On 20 July 2018, he joined CF Rayo Majadahonda from the same tier after cutting ties with his previous club.
After suffering relegation, Verdés moved to CD Castellón of the third level on 18 July 2019.
