Odense BK

Nice was Tchami's next club, with the striker signing a short-term deal until the end of the season.[6] In August 2001, Tchami left France - putting what was termed a "bad spell" behind him[7] - and moved to Russian side Chernomorets,[8] before moving again, this time to Chinese side Shenyang Ginde. Tchami signed for Lebanese side Nejmeh in September 2003 but left after less than three weeks,[9] ending his career back in France with amateur side Épernay.
