Xie Hui started his professional football career with Shanghai Shenhua in the 1994 season. After excelling with Shenhua for six seasons in the late 90s where he won one top tier league title and a Chinese FA Cup, Xie Hui transferred to 2nd Bundesliga club Alemannia Aachen in January 2000. During the 2000–01 season, Xie Hui was the top scorer for Aachen with fourteen goals in twenty-four league appearances. The following season Xie Hui netted only once in thirteen appearances and because of this drop in performance, he went back to Shanghai Shenhua on loan in March 2002 to gain more first team experience and to keep his place on the China national football team. When his loan finished he transferred to another German second tier club in SpVgg Greuther Fürth in August 2002, however after only netting only once in eight league appearances for Greuther Fürth, Xie Hui came back to China to play for Chongqing Lifan in 2003.
For the third time he rejoined Shenhua in December 2004 on a permanent basis where he once again revived his career and after two years with Shenhua, Xie headed back to Germany when he joined another second tier German club SV Wehen Wiesbaden on January 1, 2008 on an 18-month contract. When his contract ended Xie would once again return to Shenhua on January 6, 2009 for a testimonial. After the game he officially retired from football and soon became an assistant manager at Shenhua. He was hired by Shanghai SIPG Football club as an assistant coach.
