He played for Dijon in 14 games in Ligue 1 but couldn't avoid the club's relegation.In the first half of the 2012-2013 season he appeared in only one game for Dijon in Ligue 2 so the club decided to loan him at Belgian club Standard Liège where he would play for the rest of the season.In Belgium he reunited with Mircea Rednic who coached him at FC Dinamo Bucureşti.After Mircea Rednic left Standard Liège, his contract with the club was not renewed so he went back to Dijon. He later rejoined Rednic who became the new trainer of KAA Gent a few months before, also on loan.
