Eduardo Delani Santos Leite (born November 3, 1981) is a Brazilian professional football player currently playing Viborg FF in the Danish First Division.

He was brought to Europe in early 2005 by Swedish Allsvenskan club Halmstads BK. Due to a severe knee injury the transfer was delayed until the summer, becoming the first Brazilian to play for the club ever. Unfortunately he did not live up to the expectations, and after the 2006 season Halmstads BK chose not to extend Delani's contract. He returned home to Brazil and he played for the club Clube de Regatas Brasil for a short time before returning to Scandinavia, this time signing for the Danish club Vejle Boldklub. On July 26, 2007 he signed a 1-year contract with the club.

Eduardo Delani is the double first cousin of the professional football player Kaká, who is playing for Real Madrid, and Kaká's brother Digão, who is playing for Crotone on loan from A.C. Milan. Their respective fathers are brothers (Mr. Leite), and their respective mothers (Miss Santos) are sisters.
