In the 2007–08 season, he was promoted to the Anderlecht first team and on 22nd December 2007, Vadis scored his first goal on his full debut against Mons.

Vadis made his Norwich debut as substitute in the 3-1 win over Brentford on 16th September 2014. Injuries limited him to just six appearances in 2014/15.

On 1st September 2015, Vadis was loaned to Rotherham for a month to gain match fitness. He made four appearances for Rotherham, scoring once against Cardiff, before returning to Norwich.

Vadis made 12 appearances for City in 2015/16 as the Canaries were relegated from the Premier League.

They had a successful season winning the Polish title scoring five goals in 38 games in domestic and European football. Last season he also scored a superb goal against Real Madrid in the Champions League, earning him Uefa’s goal of the week award.

On 22 July 2018, Vadis returned to his hometown to sign for Gent in a deal worth 2.2million Euros.
