Jan-Derek Sørensen (born 28 December 1971) is a retired Norwegian football midfielder.

Club career[edit]

He was born in Oslo, his breakthrough came in Lyn, where he played 49 league matches from 1991 to 1994. He later played for Bodø/Glimt from 1994 to 1997 and Rosenborg from 1998 to 2000.

After a personally relatively unsuccessful spell with German team Borussia Dortmund from January 2001 to January 2003 despite winning the Bundesliga title in 2001–02 he returned to Lyn. In 2004 he became their top scorer, with only nine goals. In November 2005 he signed a contract with Oslo rivals Vålerenga, something that has provoked the supporters of Lyn, he then played two years for Bodø/Glimt in 2008 and 2009 before retiring from professional football.

After some months of hiatus, in 2010 he signed for low-level team Bærumsløkka FK together with Axel Kolle and Glenn Hartmann.[1]

International career[edit]

Sørensen has been capped 21 times for Norway without scoring a goal.
