Mori began his football career, playing for Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv and joined the club since he was thirteen. Mori was then promoted to the first team squad in 2008. In the 2008–09 season, Mori scored his first European goal, in the first leg of second round of the Europa League, as Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv wins 4–0 against Dinaburg.
In the summer of 2012, Mori joined Dutch Eredivisie club Vitesse Arnhem on a three-year contract, with the fee believed to be €300,000. After spending two months on the bench, Mori finally made his debut for the club, and his first start, in a 2–2 draw with Groningen on 27 October 2012. However, in his first season, Mori spent most of his time on the bench, without being called to the pitch. This continuously happens onwards in the 2013–14 season. Mori quoted on his time at Vitesse in an interview: "I do not get the minutes I want to get, I did not go to serve as decor. While difficult, do not even go to sea."
Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv
In 2008, Mori was called up by Israel U21 squad and two years later, Mori was called up by the Israel. On 3 March 2010, Mori made his debut, coming on as a substitute in the 70th minutes for Tal Ben Haim, in a 2–0 win over Romania.
In 2011, Mori changed his name from Dean to Dan because he believed the name "Dean means 'trial', and Jewish people shouldn't be called by that name". It was Chaim Kanievsky who was responsible for changing his name.
