Youssouf Mulumbu (born 25 January 1987) is a professional footballer who plays for West Bromwich Albion as a midfielder.

Club career

Paris Saint-Germain

Born in Kinshasa, Zaire, Mulumbu joined Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) in 2004.

West Bromwich Albion

It was reported by the French media on 26 January 2009 that he joined Premier League team West Bromwich Albion on a trial basis. On 2 February 2009, the January transfer deadline day, he joined them on loan with a view to a permanent deal at the end of the season. Mulumbu's first term at The Hawthorns was interrupted by injuries and he had to wait until April to make his Premier League debut, coming on as a sub in a 2–2 draw at Portsmouth. He signed for West Brom permanently on a one-year contract for a fee of £175,000 on 10 July 2009.[3]

He was named West Brom's Player of the Year by both the club and the fans at the end of the season, and signed his third contract extension in 13 months on 25 July 2011, tying himself to the club until 2015 (with the option of an extra year).[4]

On 30 November 2013, Mulumbu announced that he would be looking to leave West Brom for a "more classy club".[5] However, a week later, Mulumbu announced that his comments had been reported out of context in the media.

On 15th March 2014, Mulumbu scored a crucial winner for West Brom in a 2–1 victory against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium, giving Pepe Mel his first win as head coach.[6]

International career

He was formerly a member of the France under-20 and under-21 teams. He earned his first cap for Congo DR national football team against Algeria on 26 March 2008. In 2009, Mulumbu decided to boycott international football after he claimed his national team lacked professionalism. On 23 September 2011 he retired from international duties, quoting "numerous problems we were facing with some authorities within the DR Congo Football Federation".[7] However, in July 2012, he decided to revoke this decision, and made himself available for the Congo DR national football team once again.[7]

Personal life

Mulumbu is a Muslim. He has 2 children. [8]
