Playing career

Having joined Sheffield United in 2006 from Stade de Reims Chanot became a regular in the academy and reserves sides. The aggressive, athletic central defender joined Mansfield Town on loan on 4 October 2008, and made his debut for Mansfield in the 0-1 defeat against Woking despite picking up man of the match award. He returned to Bramall Lane having played five games for The Stags. As the Blades looked to cut costs, having failed to gain promotion, Chanot was released at the end of the 2008-09 season.

He went on trial in mid-2009 to then-Football League Championship side Barnsley and impressed the coaching staff with his competitive style and played in five pre-season friendlies, Barnsley extended his trial period for a further two weeks after impressing in the games and training. Chanot narrowly missed out on a contract with Barnsley, due to them wanting a more experienced central defender.

In November 2009 he signed a two-year contract with French Ligue 1 side Le Mans FC. He then moved on a season-long loan to FC Gueugnon in 2010. In September 2011 Chanot signed a one-year deal for Belgium team White Star Woluwe FC, which was successively extended for one more season. His great performances drew the attention of a Division 1 Belgium team, Beerschot AC which signed him in 2013. The same year, Chanot continued to impress and was offered a contract by another Division 1 Belgium team, KV Kortrijk. Chanot was named several times best defender of the Belgium championship. Despite being chased by many clubs, especially Queen Park Rangers and Chievo Verona, he decided to join New York City FC coached by Patrick Vieira.

New York City FC

On July 16, 2016, it was announced that he had signed with Major League Soccer club New York City FC. Chanot made his NYCFC debut as a halftime substitute for Jefferson Mena during a 5-1 victory against the Colorado Rapids on July 30, 2016. Chanot was given Team of the Week honors by MLS the following week for his performance during his first start for New York City against the San Jose Earthquakes. He finished the season having made 8 league appearances as well as starting both of NYCFC's playoff games.

On 3 June 2017, Chanot scored his first MLS goal in a 2–1 win over Philadelphia Union.

International career

A Luxembourg international, Chanot scored his personal first goal for his national team on 4 June 2014, netting an equaliser in a friendly game against four-time FIFA World Cup winners Italy played at Stadio Renato Curi, Perugia. The game ended in a 1–1 draw. On November 13, 2016, he converted a penalty in a World Cup qualifier against the Netherlands, which ended up being a 3-1 loss for Luxembourg.
