Melo, who began his career with Uniao Lamas, failed to make a single appearance under Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal. His last competitive Owls outing came on the final day of the 2014/15 campaign.

Injuries troubled Melo throughout his time at Hillsborough and he was farmed out on loan to Paços de Ferreira last season. He made 16 appearances, including 13 starts.
