Defrel joined Parma in 2009 and made his début for the club as a substitute at the age of 19 on 22 May 2011 in the final game of the 2010–11 Serie A season in a dead rubber against Cagliari, a match that ended 1–1.
In June 2012 Cesena and Parma made a series of cashless player swaps, in which Defrel (€1.2M) and Gianluca Lapadula (€1.4M) went to Cesena whilst Andrea Rossini (€1.6M) and Nicola Del Pivo (€1.0M) went to Parma. Both clubs retained 50% registration rights. In June 2013 and June 2014 the co-ownership of Defrel was renewed. Despite Parma going bankrupted and failing to find a new buyer on 25 June 2015, Cesena submitted a bid of reported €51,000 to Lega Serie A to solve the co-ownership in favour of Cesena, despite the club not being required to do so.
On 5 August 2015, Sassuolo announced that they had signed Defrel from Cesena for an undisclosed fee. He was given the number 92 shirt.
