Jeffrey Mallen Christiaens (born 17 May 1991) is a Belgian–Filipino footballer who mainly plays as a winger for Filipino side Ceres–Negros. He also represents the Philippines at international level.
Christiaens started his youth career at Ruiselede before moving on to Deinze and eventually Club Brugge. Towards the end of the 2010–11 season, he was released by Club Brugge and signed for Belgian Third Division side Torhout. He made his senior debut on 17 August 2011 in the 1–1 home draw against Géants Athois, coming on as a substitute in 80th minute. He made his first start and scored his first goal for the club in his second appearance in the 2–2 away draw to Royal Mouscron-Péruwelz.
On 19 November 2011, he made an appearance for Filipino side Global FC in a round of 16 match in the 2011 United Football Cup against the Philippine Army. They won 3–0 and progressed to the quarter-finals. However, there were no reports indicating that there was any deal in place which would see him play for Global FC. It would be his only appearance for the club before returning to Torhout. Upon his return, he would make a further four appearances and finishing the 2011–12 season with 13 appearances.
In the summer of 2012, he moved to the Philippines and signed for Global FC.
In August 2011, the team manager of the Philippines national team traveled to Europe to scout for potential talent. Three players that were tapped were Belgian–Filipinos which included Christiaens. They traveled to the Philippines in early September to try out for the Philippines national under-23 team that will be competing at the 2011 Southeast Asian Games. Christiaens in particular was able to impress sufficiently that he was also named in the senior national team's 20-man squad for the 2011 Long Teng Cup.Global FC
