In 2009, at the age of 19, Yau began his senior career at Panamanian club Alianza before moving to Sporting San Miguelito a year later where he made 17 appearances before being loaned out to Deportivo Cali in 2011 and Australian club Sydney FC in 2012. The move to Sydney FC is Yau's first move outside of Central or South America so far in his short career.
On July 11, 2012, it was announced that he had joined Sydney FC on a one year loan deal from Panamanian club Sporting San Miguelito with the option to make the move permanent throughout the season. After a solid first season which yielded 6 goals in 18 games, Sydney FC announced that they would be extending the loan for an additional year.  On 7 January 2014, Sydney FC announced that they would be releasing Yau from the remaining months of his loan deal to allow him to undergo treatment for compartment syndrome in his legs. 
Yau has represented Panama at U21, U23 and senior level in recent years. He made one appearance for the U21 team in the 2010 CAC Games and also made 5 appearances overall for Panama at U23 level, scoring 1 goal in their CONCACAF Under 23 Olympic Qualifying campaign.
On 8 September 2010 he made his senior international debut for Panama in a match against Trinidad and Tobago coming of the bench to replace Luis Rentería in the 67' minute of the game. In May 2012 he scored his first goal for Panama in a match against Guyana national football team.
