Jelle Vossen (born 22 March 1989) is a Belgian professional footballer who plays as a striker for Club Brugge.

Club career[edit]

RC Genk[edit]

Vossen was part of a last minute transfer deal in the late evening of 31 August 2009. Cercle Brugge and RC Genk came to an agreement in which Vossen was loaned to Cercle Brugge and his team mate Hans Cornelis joined Brugge in a permanent move. Thomas Buffel went in the opposite direction. In the summer of 2010, he rejoined Genk.

Middlesbrough[edit]

On 1 September 2014, it was announced that Vossen had joined English Championship club Middlesbrough on a season long loan from Genk with a view to a permanent £3million transfer at the end of the season.[1]

Vossen made his Middlesbrough debut in a 2–1 win against Huddersfield Town on 13 September 2014 coming on as a substitiute for Lee Tomlin in the 59th minute. Vossen scored his first goals for the Teesside club, hitting a 45 minute hat-trick in a 5–1 away win against Millwall.

Burnley[edit]

On 6 July 2015 it was confirmed that Burnley had signed Vossen on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee. [2][3] On 8 August 2015, on the opening day of the English Championship 2015/16 season, Vossen made his debut for Burnley F.C. against Leeds United in a 1-1 draw.[4]

Club Brugge[edit]

On 30 August 2015, despite spending less than two months under contract at Burnley, Vossen signed a five-year contract at Club Brugge.[5]

International career[edit]

Vossen was called up for Belgium's Kirin Cup matches against Chile and Japan. As from 2010, he is often called for the national team together with his co-attacker from Genk Marvin Ogunjimi. On 12 October 2010, Vossen scored his first goal in a 4–4 home draw Euro 2012 qualifying game against Austria.
