In August 2015, he played with the Danish club Aalborg to try to raise his level of play but he spent one season with this club without really succeeding in giving satisfaction to his team. Then, in February 2017, he joined China with the Henan Jianye FC club and started to be one of the leaders of the team. He extended his contract with this Chinese club on April 2, 2018.
He finds his favorite position playing on the right side to be able to return and put on his left foot.
