Ayoze signed with Indy Eleven in February 2018 after parting ways with New York Cosmos. In his first season with the Boys in Blue in 2018, the veteran left-sided maestro made 29 appearances in the starting lineup for his new club, subbing off only once on his way to scoring four goals and creating eight assists. In addition to being an excellent playmaker, Ayoze excelled at ball movement, having completed an average of 79% of his passes. His 2018 performance was enough to earn him 2018 USL All-League Second Team honors.
Before Indy Eleven: Ayoze began his youth career with CD Tenerife B in his native Spain, where he made 50 appearances and scored eight goals before being promoted to the senior squad in 2003. His seven-year career with Tenerife saw the Spaniard score 19 goals in 162 appearances. In 2010, Ayoze moved to another Spanish club, Sporting Gijon, before coming stateside in 2013 to join the then-NASL’s New York Cosmos, where he made 121 appearances, scored eight goals and helped the squad to three Soccer Bowl championships (2013, 2015 & 2016)
