CareerEdit

ClubEdit

Djoum started his career at Brussels in the 2006–07 season. He played 12 matches and scored one goal for the Belgian club. He moved to Anderlecht, but failed to make a break through. In January 2009, he moved to Roda JC Kerkrade in the Netherlands appearing 119 times over a span of 5 years.

After a spell in Turkey with Akhisar Belediyespor, Djoum signed for Polish club Lech Poznań in early 2015.[1]

Djoum then joined Heart of Midlothian in September 2015.[2] He scored his first goal for the club in a narrow 2–1 loss to rivals Celtic in October 2015. After settling in he very quickly became a star man in Robbie Neilson's team.

He left Hearts to join Saudi club, Al-Ra'ed in July 2019, upon the expiry of his contract.[3]

InternationalEdit

Djoum represented various Belgium youth teams, before making his senior debut for Cameroon in September 2016, in a 2–0 win over The Gambia in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.[4] He played the whole 90 minutes as Cameroon defeated Egypt 2–1 on 5 February 2017, to win the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations.[5]
