Early years

Here he also played with his three years older Brother Even de Lanlay. He was also considered a substantial talent, but had to cut down due to a knee injury. Yann-Erik was picked for the first team squad ahead of the 2010 season and made his first team debut 17 October 2010 against Odd Grenland. During the winter of 2011 de Lanlay began playing regularly for the first team, and he scored his first goal against Fredrikstad in a 2–0 victory.

In October 2013, de Lanlay signed a new contract with Viking, binding him to the club until the end of the 2016 season. [4]
