West Ham career- Quina signed his first professional contract with West Ham in November 2016. He then made his in July 2016 in a Europa League tie against NK Domzale and played in the second leg as well which the first game in the London Stadium. He has since made four more appearances for them.

Nearly joined Sheffield United last summer- Quina was a loan target for Championship side Sheffield United last summer but a loan move for him fell through. The Blades were keen to bring him to Bramall Lane on deadline day last August but were not able to complete the deal. It now looks like he will be heading to the Championship one year on, but to their Yorkshire rivals Leeds United.
