Career[edit]

Nike The Chance[edit]

On July 2012, Devante Clut was one of three chosen from the Chance Pacific Finals to compete in the world finals of Nike The Chance in Barcelona Spain.[1]

Brisbane Roar[edit]

On October 2013, Devante Clut signed professional youth contract for Brisbane Roar.[2] On 24 January 2014, Clut made his professional debut for Brisbane Roar, in the 2–1 home victory against Wellington Phoenix. Clut started the match and in the 49th minute scored a volley from outside the box.[3] He has continued to perform consistently for the club throughout the 2014–15 A-League National Youth League, scoring 8 goals in 16 appearances in that competition. Clut made his 2014–15 debut against the Suwon Bluewings where he scored two brilliant out-of-the-box strikes to draw the match at 3–3. Clut went on to score one more goal in the A-League, a clinical finish in the Roar's 6–1 plundering of the Central Coast Mariners at Suncorp Stadium.[4]

On June 3, 2015 in a friendly match against Spanish side Villarreal, Devante scored a brace including a superb strike, reminiscent of that of Loïc Rémy's strike against Sydney FC the previous day.[5]

Newcastle Jets[edit]

On 28 April 2016, Clut signed a two-year deal with the Newcastle Jets.[6] Clut scored his first A-League goal for the Newcastle Jets on 16 October 2016 against his former club, Brisbane Roar, on his 21st birthday.[7]

International[edit]

Devante made this first appearance for the Australia U20 side in Australia's 4–1 win against Bermuda in National Training Center Invitational.
