Brother of Christian, the striker signed for the Eagles just after the club record signing made it to  in August 2016, penning a one-year deal at the club.

Following his his sibling's footsteps, he played youth football for JS Pierreuse and Standard Liege, but his professional debut would come at Vise in the second tier of Belgian football. After two goals in 20 games he was signed by top-flight outfit Zulte Waregem in 2014, and he would go on to play 25 times, finding the back of the net three times.

His Eagles debut would come against Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium in September 2016, when he came on as a late substitute for Benteke senior.
