Torben Joneleit (born 17 May 1987) is a Monegasque-born German former professional footballer who played as a centre back.



Joneleit joined Scottish Premier League club Hibernian on what was originally intended to be a year's loan from Monaco for the 2007–08 season on 26 June 2007. [1] In January 2008, however, Joneleit returned to Monaco after failing to make the first team on a regular basis. Mixu Paatelainen, the club's manager, said it would be better for the player's development if he were to return to Monaco.

On 30 January 2009, Joneleit joined Belgian side Charleroi on loan until the end of the 2008–09 season. [2] He again linked up with John Collins, who had also been his manager at Hibs.

During the 2009 close season he signed a three-year deal with KRC Genk. [3]
