Delporte was born in Sainte-Catherine-lès-Arras, Pas-de-Calais. After an unassuming three-and-a-half-year spell at RC Lens which included a loan to Ligue 2 club Stade Lavallois, he moved, in January 2002, to Spanish second division team Racing de Ferrol – still on loan – helping Albacete Balompié to achieve top flight promotion the following season.
For the 2004–05 season, Delporte joined CA Osasuna, being an important offensive element in his first two years, including 27 games with three goals in the second as the Navarrese tied a best ever fourth-place in La Liga. In 2004–05's Copa del Rey final he started against Real Betis, setting up John Aloisi for the 1–1 equalizer (eventually 1–2 loss, after extra time).
However, subsequently, Delporte would be severely hindered by injuries, managing little more than 30 league appearances combined in four years, none whatsoever in the 2009–10 campaign. He was definitely released in August 2010, aged 30.
On 26 August 2010, Delporte stayed in Spain by signing with Gimnàstic de Tarragona in the second level. After another season marred by injury he was released by the Catalans, retiring shortly after.
