In 2006, José sealed a loan deal with Italian side Cagliari, but made only three appearances for the team during one year.
In 2007, the footballer transferred to English side Charlton Athletic and became the pivot, who fired two goals in 137 fixtures for ‘The Addicks’ during four years. In the summer 2011, Sheffield Wednesday secured Semedo’s services on a long-term deal and saw him score one goal in 68 games as of February 2013.
