He was brought to Europe in early 2005 by Swedish Allsvenskan club Halmstads BK. Due to a severe knee injury the transfer was delayed until the summer, becoming the first Brazilian to play for the club ever. Unfortunately he did not live up to the expectations, and after the 2006 season Halmstads BK chose not to extend Delani's contract. He returned home to Brazil and he played for the club Clube de Regatas Brasil for a short time before returning to Scandinavia, this time signing for the Danish club Vejle Boldklub. On July 26, 2007 he signed a one-year contract with the club.
Eduardo Delani is the double first cousin of the professional football player Kaká, who is playing for Orlando City, and Kaká's brother Digão, who last played for New York Red Bulls. Their respective fathers are brothers, and their respective mothers are sisters.
