Club career

Amaya started his professional career at hometown's Rayo Vallecano, playing 31 first team matches in his first two seasons combined (the first of which was played in the second division, with promotion). After that, he returned to the second level but stayed in Madrid, joining Atlético Madrid for another couple of seasons, where he was rarely played.

After another unassuming La Liga spell, with RCD Espanyol, Amaya played 40 times with Getafe CF in 2003–04, promoting for the third time with a club from the country's capital (a first-ever for Getafe). However, he appeared very rarely in the following campaign, returning to division two in January 2005, as he joined Ciudad de Murcia, being a everpresent defensive fixture.

Amaya then played two seasons with Elche CF. In July 2009, he was bought by Udinese Calcio, being immediately loaned back to Spain, with lowly Granada CF. Compatriot Óscar Pérez, whom was also purchased by the Italians, made the same season-long move as seven other players, after the two sides' partnership agreement.

International career

Amaya was selected by Spain for its 2000 Summer Olympics squad. He helped the nation win silver.

Personal

Amaya's younger brother, Antonio, is also a footballer - and a centre back. He also represented local club Rayo.
