Having started his career with the B side of Madrid-based Getafe CF, Nunez first made his name at third tier Spanish club Leganes. In 2008, he moved to Real Murcia, and played with its B team for nearly two seasons. His performances with the side earned him a spot in Murcia's first team, whom he helped earn promotion to the Spanish second division in 2010-11.

O'Dea started his career with Dublin-based club Home Farm, before moving to Scottish giants Celtic as a teenager. In the 2006-07 season, O'Dea played a notable role in Celtic's Scottish Premier League win.
