Carlos de la Vega Díaz (born 24 January 1980) is a Spanish footballer who plays for CD Leganés as a right defender.

Football career

After emerging through Rayo Vallecano's youth system, de la Vega went on to play with amateur sides RSD Alcalá and AD Alcorcón, also from his hometown of Madrid, until well into his 20's.

He did not have his first taste of full professional football until the 2008–09 season (he had only played one match with Rayo's first team in 2002–03's La Liga, one minute) when, after returning to Rayo in the previous year, he was fairly used as the club easily retained its Segunda División status.

In late December 2009, unsettled de la Vega was loaned to another side in the second level, SD Huesca, until the end of the season. In July 2012, after more than one year out of football, the 32-year-old signed for two seasons with CD Leganés in Segunda División B.

Drug scandal

In February 2009, de la Vega was arrested in connection with an anti-drug operation in the Spanish capital.[1]

After eight days, he paid 30.000 in order to be released from custody.[2] Predrag Stanković, former footballer – three years in Hércules CF – and a player's agent, was also involved in the plot, among others.
