Laurent Depoitre (born 7 December 1988) is a Belgian footballer who plays for Gent and the Belgian national team
In 2012, Depoitre joined Oostende from Aalst.
In January 2013, it was announced that he would be transferred to Zulte Waregem in 2013–2014. Afterwards, his transfer turned out to be a part of a share transaction between Yves Lejaeghere, the then-president of Ostend, and Patrick Decuyper, the then-general manager of Zulte Waregem.In the end the transaction was cancelled and as a result the transfer was also revoked.
After Depoitre decided not to extend his contract with Oostende, it was announced that he would play for KAA Gent during the 2014–2015 season.
On 10 October 2015, he made his senior debut for the national team in a 4–1 win in a UEFA Euro 2016 qualification match against Andorra. Depoitre scored his team’s fourth goal.
