Jonathan Legear (born 13 April 1987 in Liège) is a Belgian midfielder who, plays for Terek Grozny. He moved to Anderlecht from their rivals Standard Liège in 2003. He scored his first goal in the Jupiler League against Standard Liège in the season 2004-05.

He was initially registered to the football club of J.S Thier (Jeunesse sportive du Thier-à-Liège), a small club near Liège at the age of eight, a club where he showed a promising future in Belgian football. From there he was scouted by the Standard Liege Academy who recruited him in 1998. Despite the tacit agreement between the top three clubs in Belgium, which prevents transfers between those clubs academies, Legear moved from Standard to Anderlecht in 2003.

In the Jupiler League 2007-08 season, Legear made the breakthrough into the Anderlecht starting XI and has since featured regularly in the team's Jupier League and European competition matches. This has been a result of his increasing level of performances, as well as Anderlecht's lack of attacking options on the right wing. He has been touted as the next Christian Wilhelmsson, with similar hair color and speed on the flank.
