Eero Korte (born 20 September 1987) is a Finnish football midfielder currently playing for JJK in the Finnish Premier Division.

He's often been called "the next Jari Litmanen" by Finnish football experts due to his phenomenal technique, but hasn't yet quite lived up to his expectations. Although Korte made his Veikkausliiga debut already in 2004, only at the age of 16, he suffered from multiple injuries during the first years at Lahti. During the years 2003-2004 he was invited to various training camps of clubs like AFC Ajax, Chelsea and Fiorentina.

The 2008 season is widely believed to be the year of his breakthrough in the Premier Division. During the next season he played in all FC Lahti's matches, as they placed third in Veikkausliiga.

But soon after the 2010 season as FC Lahti were relegated from Veikkausliiga, Korte joined JJK on a two-year contract.
