Ekeng played for Los Blanquiverdes in the 2014-15 season, making 14 appearances and scoring once, having signed from Lausanne and left when the team was relegated. A Cameroon international, Ekeng joined Dinamo Bucharest in January.
The Guardian reports Ekeng entered the game against Viitorul Constanta as a second half substitute but collapsed in the 70th minute, seven minutes after he was brought on.
Ekeng was taken to a local hospital but died less than two hours later, a heart attack the reported cause.
