From there, in 2009 he signed for another Division 3 side Rayo Vallecano B playing 44 times and scored 25 goals.

He has also played for Ukrainian sides FC Karpaty Lviv and FC Dynamo Kyiv. In July of 2013 Lucas signed for Greek SuperLeague side PAOK FC for a fee of €700,000. Making 32 appearances and scoring 9 goals. Finally in 2014 he made a loan move back to Spain and would eventually sign for Deportivo.
