Emil Sigvardsen Lyng (born 3 August 1989 in Kolding) is a Danish professional footballer.[1]


Early career[edit]

Lyng began his youth career playing for Kolding FC, but later moved to city rival Kolding IF and played there until he was picked up by AGF Aarhus. In January 2008 he was promoted to the AGF first team, but never got his Danish League debut for the club before he was sold to Lille OSC[2] in the summer of 2008. He made his senior debut for Lille on 18 October 2008 against Olympique Lyon. On 27 January 2010 Zulte Waregem signed the Danish forward on loan from Lille for 6 months.[3]

Zulte Waregem[edit]

On 7 February 2010 he got his debut at home against Club Bruges in the Jupiler League, playing as center forward. Lyng showed great composure in front of goal, as he headed his team into the lead.

FC Nordsjælland[edit]

On 26 January 2011, Emil Lyng joined Danish club FC Nordsjælland on loan for the rest of the 2010-11 season, making 4 appearances and scoring 1 goal.


Lyng was allowed to leave Lille on a free transfer during the 2011 summer transfer window to join Swiss side Lausanne-Sports, where he signed a two-year contract and was given the number 28 shirt.[4]
