Dekelver would make his début at the age of 18. In January 2003 he signed for KFC Strombeek. 6 months later, this team became FC Brussels. When FC Brussels were promoted to the Jupiler League, Dekelver chose to leave the team together with coach Harm van Veldhoven, after a conflict with chairman Johan Vermeersch. Dekelver as well as Van Veldhoven went to Cercle Brugge. In Bruges, Dekelver had a quite successful period, being top scorer of the team twice. But in January 2007, Dekelver, almost end of contract, wanted to leave Cercle for VC Westerlo because this was much closer to where he lives.
