Born in Courbevoie, Paris, Loé moved to Spain in 2008 at the age of 19, and joined amateur team Manchego CF. On 14 August 2009, he signed a contract with AD Ceuta in the third division after impressing in a trial;[2] he played 35 games in his first year, and appeared in both round-of-32 legs against FC Barcelona in the following season's Copa del Rey.[3][4]

On 1 July 2015, Loé moved to Qatar after agreeing to a contract with Al-Sailiya SC.[9] The free agent returned to the Spanish top flight and Osasuna on 6 February 2017, signing until the end of the season.[10]

On 31 August 2017, Loé joined Bulgarian club PFC CSKA Sofia,[11] being released at the end of the campaign.[12] On 20 June 2018, he signed with AC Omonia from Cyprus.[13]
