Thomas Enevoldsen (born 27 July 1987 in Aalborg) is a Danish professional football midfielder, who currently plays for AaB, on loan from KV Mechelen, where he has a contract running until June 2015. He has played eight games and scored one goal for the Denmark national football team.

Club career[edit]

He got his domestic breakthrough during AaB's championship-winning Danish Superliga 2007-08 season. Enevoldsen played 31 of 33 Superliga games and scored three goals. He also played well at the European stage, and scored a goal at White Hart Lane against Tottenham Hotspur in the 2007–08 UEFA Cup, to put AaB one ahead in a game they eventually lost 3–2. On 3 April 2008 he was selected as Player of the Month in March by the managers and team captains of the Superliga clubs. With the honour came the free use of a Mercedes-Benz SL 500 in all of April.[2] Enevoldsen played 28 games in the Danish Superliga 2008-09 season, as well as games in the European UEFA Champions League 2008-09 and 2008–09 UEFA Cup tournaments. In the Summer of 2009, Enevoldsen was linked with a transfer to several European clubs, among them S.L. Benfica.

At the start of the Danish Superliga 2009-10 season, Enevoldsen signed a five-year deal for Dutch club FC Groningen. FC Groningen paid a reported 9,3 million kroner (1,25 million euro) for him.[3] He scored his first three goals for FC Groningen in the same match on 13 December 2009 against Sparta Rotterdam. All goals were scored from outside of the penalty area. Following the 2011–12 season, he moved to KV Mechelen.

International career[edit]

Enevoldsen made his international debut with the Under-18 national selection in September 2004. He played a total 26 youth internationals.

In October 2009, Enevoldsen was called up for the Danish national team for the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying games against Sweden and Hungary. He made his debut when he replaced Søren Larsen for the second half of the match against Hungary. He scored his first international goal in a May 2010 friendly match against Senegal.
