Jan-Derek Sørensen (born 28 December 1971) is a retired Norwegian football midfielder.

Club career[edit]

He was born in Oslo. His breakthrough came in Lyn, where he played 49 league matches from 1991 to 1994. He later played for Bodø/Glimt from 1994 to 1997 and Rosenborg from 1998 to 2000.

After a relatively unsuccessful spell with German team Borussia Dortmund in 2001-2002 he returned to Lyn. In 2004 he became their top scorer, with only nine goals. In November 2005 he signed a contract with Oslo rivals Vålerenga, something that has provoked the supporters of Lyn. He then played two years for Bodø/Glimt in 2008 and 2009 before retiring from professional football.

After some months of hiatus, in 2010 he signed for low-level team Bærumsløkka FK together with Axel Kolle and Glenn Hartmann.[1]

International career[edit]

Sørensen has been capped over 20 times for Norway.
