KAS Eupen has signed a new player to strengthen its team. Rémi Mulumba transfers to KAS Eupen from French second division club GFC Ajaccio. The 25-year-old Congolese is a midfielder who can be used primarily in defence, but also in the central midfield. Rémi Mulumba has played a total of 99 Ligue 2 and 17 Ligue 1 games for Lorient FC, Dijon FCO, AJ Auxerre and GFC Ajaccio.
As a dual national, the youngster has won 20 caps for France at the U17 to U20 levels. Rémi Mulumba accepted an invitation to represent the Republic of Congo’s national team in 2015 and has since won 12 caps for the Congolese A-team. Over the course of the current championship, Rémi Mulumba has made his club’s starting lineup for 12 matches.
KAS Eupen has signed Rémi Mulumba until 30 June 2019.
KAS CEO Christoph Henkel expressed his delight at the latest new signing: “As a 25-year-old, Rémi Mulumba already brings with him some experience from the French 1st and 2nd divisions, which will certainly benefit us. As a midfielder, who can be used in both the defensive and central midfield, he matches the profile we have been looking for in this area of our team structure. We are glad that Rémi Mulumba has chosen KAS Eupen and we look forward to working with him.”
