Denayer began playing football at the age of six, first for FC Ganshoren and then for Anderlecht. He enrolled in the JMG Academy in Lier when he was 13 years old. It was there that he was converted from a striker to a defender. Denayer attributes his football technique to his stint at JMG. The academy’s youth do not participate in regular competitive football; instead, they play small-sided games among themselves, focusing on technique and education in a private school. “It helps to build your technical skills,” they said. They practiced on bare feet to improve their touch. You can put on shoes if you’ve achieved a certain level.

Denayer was signed by Lierse in 2013, as part of a cooperation with the JMG Academy. He, on the other hand, turned down their offer and traveled to England to look for a club. He was given a trial by Liverpool, but the club and the player were unable to come to an agreement. He then traveled to Manchester City for a trial.

Denayer joined Manchester City’s academy in July 2013. Denayer secured his first professional deal with Manchester City after a successful trial during the summer transfer window. [8] Denayer was a regular in the club’s UEFA Youth League campaign, making eight appearances and scoring once in a 6–0 triumph over Bayern Munich. Denayer also contributed significantly in domestic events, helping the team finish fourth in the Professional U21 Development League and reach the U21 Premier League Cup final.

Denayer was included in the first squad during pre-season in July 2014 and began in a 2–0 friendly loss away to Dundee. On July 10, 2015, it was announced that he would be part of the club’s pre-season tour to Australia. On July 13, 2015, Denayer agreed to a new five-year contract.

Celtic recruited Denayer on a season-long loan from Manchester City on August 12, 2014. Denayer revealed that Vincent Kompany and Patrick Vieira were instrumental in his decision to join Celtic. He was one of Celtic manager Ronny Deila’s first key recruits.

In a 6–1 victory over Dundee United at home in the Scottish Premiership, he scored on his debut and was awarded man of the match. Denayer made his Champions League debut four days later, in a 1–1 tie against Maribor when he was part of the starting lineup. On September 13, 2014, he scored his second goal in a 2–1 win over Aberdeen. On October 18, 2014, in a 5–0 win over Ross County, the defender scored once more for Celtic. Denayer had made 17 appearances for Celtic by the end of December, forming a good defensive partnership with Virgil van Dijk. “We play well together and he is a really excellent player,” Denayer said of playing alongside Van Dijk, adding, “I am also learning from him.” He knows what to say to me since he has more experience than I have. I pay attention to him because I know he can help me improve as a player.”

Celtic was reportedly ready to prolong Denayer’s loan stint by another year just months after he arrived at the club. Denayer, on the other hand, instantly ruled out a permanent move to Celtic, stating that he aimed to gain a first-team spot at Manchester City in the near future. Denayer’s progress at Celtic was closely monitored by Manchester City.

Denayer won his first major prize on March 15, 2015, in the League Cup Final at Hampden Park, as Celtic defeated Dundee United 2–0. Celtic were crowned Premiership champions on May 2 when Dundee United overcame nearest rivals Aberdeen. Denayer was named PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year the next day, with Stefan Johansen winning the overall award.

Denayer joined Galatasaray on a season-long loan from Manchester City in August 2015. Denayer made his Galatasaray debut against Atlético Madrid in the UEFA Champions League on September 15, 2015. Despite the 2–0 setback, the Belgian defender put forth a strong showing. On September 19, he made his league debut in an away encounter against Trabzonspor, where he played on the right side of the defense and helped his new team keep a clean sheet in a 1–0 victory. Denayer continues to show off his natural speed and power while also honing his game reading skills. His ability to contribute to the attacking side of the game was emphasized by two assists for goals against Eskişehirspor and Gaziantepspor.

On May 26, 2016, he played his final match for Galatasaray in the Turkish Cup Final against Fenerbahçe. On 30 minutes, Denayer assisted on the game’s sole goal, a flip on from Emre Colak’s corner to Lukas Podolski, who headed in from close range.

Denayer signed a season-long loan agreement with Sunderland in the Premier League on August 31, 2016. Sunderland, on the other hand, struggled and was relegated. Denayer failed to maintain consistency in his play and was frequently deployed in midfield rather than his natural position as a defender. Toward the end of the season, he was also hampered by a series of minor ailments.

Denayer re-signed for Galatasaray on a season-long loan deal on August 31, 2017. Denayer set a new Süper Lig to pass completion record of 60 in a 2–0 win against Osmanlspor on 28 January 2018, surpassing Atiba Hutchinson of Beşiktaş’s previous record of 50 set in season 2014–15. During his second stay at Galatasaray, he appeared in 22 games and helped the club win the Süper Lig in 2017–18.

Denayer signed a four-year contract with French club Olympique Lyonnais on August 21, 2018. Denayer was a mainstay for the team, making 31 starts and scoring two goals in the 2018–19 season. On 15 August 2020, he played his former club, Manchester City, in the Champions League quarter-finals, which Lyon won 3–1.

Denayer has represented Belgium at various levels since 2013, including Belgium U19 and Belgium U21.

National team manager Marc Wilmots called him to the Belgian national team for the first time on October 2, 2014, for their Euro 2016 qualification match against Andorra. Denayer was named to more international squads for Euro qualifiers against Bosnia and Herzegovina and Wales, as well as a friendly against Iceland. In each of these four games, though, he was an unused substitute.

Denayer made his senior international debut for Belgium on March 31, 2015, against Israel at the Teddy Stadium in Jerusalem in a UEFA Euro 2016 qualifier. In the 67th minute of Belgium’s 1–0 triumph over the Netherlands, he came on to replace Aston Villa striker Christian Benteke. Denayer made his senior team debut on June 7, 2015, in a friendly match in Paris against France, which Belgium won 4–3. Denayer was substituted late in the game due to a small knock, and manager Marc Wilmots noted that it was after this that France scored twice to drag the game back to 4–3.

For the 2016 European Championships, he was named to Belgium’s 23-man squad. Denayer only appeared once, in a quarter-final match against Wales, when he was called into an injury-plagued Belgian defense. Wales dragged Belgium, and Denayer in particular, to a 3–1 defeat.
