Derek Decamps aka Derek (born 2 May 1985 in Paris, France) is a French football player who plays in the Norwegian Tippeligaen for Sandnes Ulf.


Decamps began playing football with AS Cannes, and moved to Greece to play for Aris Thessaloniki F.C. and PAS Giannina F.C. in the Greek Superleague.

He moved to Spain and played for Lorca Deportiva CF[1] and AD Alcorcón in the Spanish Segunda División B.[2]

On 15 August 2009 the 24-year-old French defender has left Spanish club Santa Eulàlia of the Spanish Segunda División B to join South African side Ajax Cape Town.[3] In 2010/11 season he played a big part in Ajax's successful league campaign in which Ajax finished 2nd after only managing a draw in the last home game. A win would have won the championship for the Cape Town side.

On 27 June 2011, the Norwegian club FK Haugesund announced that they had signed Decamps on a one-year contract.[4] After one year Decamps was a regular starter for Haugesund in Tippeligaen, and the club wanted to renew his contract, but Decamps chose to move home to his family in France when his contract expired on 31 July 2012.[5] In August 2013 he signed a loan contract with Sarpsborg 08 out the season.

In January 2014 he moved to the Norwegian Tippeliga club, Sandnes Ulf.
