Persoons made his first team debut with Eendracht Aalst. When the team went bankrupt, he signed for Aalst rivals FC Denderleeuw, who became FCV Dender after their merge with Verbroedering Denderhoutem. He became popular quite quickly, and was even nicknamed Biglia by his coach Jean-Pierre Van De Velde. Even though Dender became Belgian Second Division champions in 2007, Persoons chose to sign for KV Mechelen who were also playing in Second Division.
