A product of hometown Rio Ave FC's youth system, Gomes first appeared with the main squad on 19 March 2006, starting in a 0–1 home loss against S.L. Benfica. In late January 2008, he began an unsuccessful loan spell at Serie A's Cagliari Calcio, making no appearances and returning to Rio Ave in July; during that season, he also appeared in 13 games (12 starts) as the Vila do Conde team returned to the Primeira Liga after an absence of two years.
In the following top flight campaigns, Gomes was regularly used by Rio Ave. He scored his first goals in 2009–10, against C.D. Nacional (2–0, home) and S.C. Olhanense (1–5 loss, also at home).
In January 2013, Gomes joined a host of compatriots at Videoton FC, with the Hungarians making the deal permanent in the summer. Exactly two years later, after a brief spell back in his country with Moreirense FC, he moved abroad again, joining Balıkesirspor in the Süper Lig.
Internationally, Gomes was a member of the Portuguese under-20 squad at the 2007 FIFA World Cup. Later that year, in August, he received his first callup to the under-21s.
Gomes' older brother, José, is also a footballer. A defender, he represented several clubs, and the pair shared teams in Rio Ave (2005–06, 2009–12).
