Born in Bafia, Cameroon, Ikeng began his professional career in early 2005, signing with VfB Stuttgart's reserve side. At the time, Ikeng was one of the most highly touted young players in Germany, receiving third place for Fritz-Walter medal in 2006, an award given to the best young German footballer. (Ikeng finished behind Sergej Evljuskin and Alexander Eberlein of VfL Wolfsburg and 1860 Munich, respectively). However, following a series of knee injuries that threatened to end his career, Ikeng lost much of the interest he had begun to earn from senior clubs around Germany via lack of playing time in competitive games.
