Yang Yu broke into the senior side of Liaoning FC on September 12, 2006 in a league game against Dalian Shide as a late substitute in a 2–1 victory. After making his debut he would become a fringe player within the squad, however he would see enough playing time to score his debut goal against Shandong Luneng in a league game on August 11, 2007 in a 2–1 victory. Often a peripheral member of the squad it was only once Liaoning were relegated at the end of the 2008 league season and playing in the second tier before Yang Yu was given his chance to establish himself within the Liaoning team. Even during the 2009 league season when Liaoning were playing in the second tier Yang Yu would still have to wait to establish himself within the team and only became a vital member for the club during the second half of the season when Liaoning were pushing for the division title and promotion back into the top tier.
