  • Player profile

    The powerful and energetic defender was a signing of Sven-Goran Eriksson from SPL side Hibernian and he instantly became a bit of a fans' favourite at the Walkers Stadium. The Frenchman started at Paris St Germain but only made one appearance before arriving at City via Dunfermline and Hibs. Eriksson knew Bamba well from his time as Ivory Coast manager and he signed for an undisclosed fee in the January transfer window of 2011.

    He made an instant impact, playing in the 2-2 draw against Manchester City in the FA Cup third round and scoring with his very first touch of the ball. As well as strength and quality in defence, Bamba is also a big threat from attacking setpieces, something which endeared him to the Leicester faithful. He scored his first league goals in a 4-2 win over Millwall, scoring in twice in January 2011.

    Bamba was born in France but he represents his parents' homeland of the Ivory Coast, making 18 appearances and chipping in with two goals. He signed a new deal with Leicester in 2011.
