Louis started with AMsoccer at Falkland Primary school Afterschools programme when he was 8 years old, progressing through the levels with the Fife-based community organisation set up by Austin MacPhee.

After spending two years as a youth player with Dunfermline Athletic, he returned to AM Soccer Club to play for their newly launched first team. In November 2015, the young striker had a trial at Raith Rovers playing and scoring for Ray McKinnon's Under-20 Development team. In May 2016, Louis made the local headlines when he was scouted by AS Roma and underwent a three day trial in Italy, before Ray McKinnon - then United manager - brought the 17-year-old to Tannadice in August 2016.

Starring in the Development side, he made his first-team debut as a substitute against Cowdenbeath during the League Cup group stages in August 2017, and at the end of that season, he signed a two-year contract extension.

The 2018-19 season saw the young striker involved in the Challenge Cup matches, as well as a substitute appearance in the League Cup against Ross County. In January 2019 he was sent out on loan to junior side Broughty Atheltic, managed by former United player Jamie McCunnie, where he netted 23 goals in a four-month stint. On his return to Tannadice, Louis was involved in the first team's pre-season friendlies against East Fife, Brechin City and Dumbarton, scoring in the latter two matches.

During the 2019-20 Championship-winning season, Louis became a regular in the first-team and received international recognition with a call up to Scotland Under 21 squad in March for his excellent consistent performances.
