Jefferson Antonio Montero Vite
(born 1 September 1989) is an Ecuadorian footballer who plays as a winger for Morelia of Mexico.

Early Years
Born in Babahoyo, Los Ríos, Montero started playing professionally with Club Sport Emelec, but first impressed whilst at Club Social y Deportivo Independiente José Terán, in the Ecuadorian second division.

Shortly after arriving, he was loaned to Mexican outfit of Dorados de Sinaloa, which was pushing for promotion to the top division; he signed alongside compatriot José Madrid, and made his official debut for the club on 11 October 2008, playing the entire match against Irapuato FC.

Club Career
On 27 April 2009, Villarreal CF from Spain signed the 20-year old Montero to a five-year contract, effective from the start of the 2009–10 season in La Liga.[1] On 19 July, he contributed with two goals and five assists as the Valencian Community side trounced amateurs Navata 27–0;[2] he spent the vast majority of his first season with the club, however, with the reserves in the second division, being one of the most important offensive elements as the club overachieved in its first season in that level, finishing seventh.

Subsequently, Montero was definitely promoted to the main squad, as a complement for more experienced Santi Cazorla and Cani. He made his top division debut on 29 August 2010, replacing the latter in a 0–1 loss at Real Sociedad, in 2010–11's opener.

Montero failed to find a regular first team place at Villarreal, and moved to fellow top-divisioner Levante UD in late January 2011, on a four-month loan. He returned in June but, on the 28th, left in the same predicament to freshly promoted Real Betis.[3]

On 10 March 2012 Montero scored his first goal of the season, in a 2–3 home loss against Real Madrid. He was first-choice throughout most of the campaign for the Pepe Mel-led squad, who managed to retain its league status.

12/13 season
On 15 June 2012, Montero was transferred to Liga MX club Monarcas Morelia, on a three-year contract.[4] The move was made official 11 days later and, on 15 July, he scored his first goal against Club América, also making two assists in the game. On 21 August 2012, in a Copa MX match against his former team Dorados, Montero scored a hat-trick, in a 6–0 win.[5]

On 4 January 2013, Montero scored the opening goal and inaugural goal of the Clausura 2013 season, in a 3–3 home draw against Cruz Azul, assisted by his international team-mate Joao Rojas.[6] On 23 February Montero scored in a 3–2 win over Pachuca. His final goal of the season was on 27 April, in a 2–1 home win over Toluca.

13/14 season
After Montero's Ecuadorian counter-part Joao Rojas left the club, Montero was given the club's number 10 shirt. His kick-off to the season came on 19 July, where he scored a goal in a 3–1 victory over Querétaro. On July 26, Montero scored a hat-trick in a 4–3 loss against Toluca.

International Career
Montero represented Ecuador in the 2007 Pan American Games, scoring in the final match against Jamaica, a 2–1 win which brought the first international trophy in Ecuadorian football history.[7] He received his first senior international call-up from national team coach Luis Fernando Suárez, in an August 2007 friendly with Bolivia.[8]

Montero made his full debut for Ecuador in a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Peru, coming on late in the second half in a 5–1 home win.[9] He scored his first goal for the national team on 27 May 2009, in a 1–3 friendly loss with El Salvador. On 7 June he netted his second, in another defeat of Peru in the World Cup qualifying campaign, now 2–1 in Lima.
