Born in Las Palmas, Canary Islands, Tana made his senior debut with lowly UD Villa de Santa Brígida in the 2009–10 season.[1][2] Two years later he first arrived in Segunda División B, playing for UD Vecindario.

In January 2012, Tana signed with UD Las Palmas, being initially assigned to the third team.[3] He was promoted to the reserves the following year, with whom he reached promotion to the third division at the end of 2012–13 campaign.

In August 2013, Tana was promoted to the main squad in Segunda División,[4] and made his debut as a professional late in that month by coming on as a 59th-minute substitute for Jesús Tato in a 1–1 home draw against SD Eibar.[5] He scored his first goal in the competition on 5 October, in a 2–0 home win over Córdoba CF.[6]

Tana contributed only one league appearance during 2014–15, as the Amarillos achieved promotion to La Liga. His maiden appearance in the Spanish top flight occurred on 25 October 2015, as he started in a 0–0 home draw against Villarreal CF.[7]

A starter under new manager Quique Setién, Tana signed a new three-year deal with Las Palmas on 25 November 2015.[8] He scored his first goal in the top tier on 30 December, opening a 4–1 home rout of Granada CF.[9]

Tana renewed with Las Palmas on 7 April 2016, until 2019.[10] On 20 September 2018, he further extended his link until 2023.[11]

On 31 January 2019, Tana was loaned to a Chinese club until the end of the year,[12] later revealed to be Zhejiang Greentown FC.[13] On 3 September 2020, his contract was terminated by the board of directors due to “disciplinary reasons”.[14]

On 1 January 2021, free agent Tana agreed to a short-term deal with Albacete Balompié in the second division.[15]
