Former Norwich City midfielder, Youssouf Mulumbu has signed for Kilmarnock on a free transfer for the rest of the season.

The DR Congo international spent two years at Norwich but made just 24 appearances in that time for the Canaries. He was rumoured to be on a big wage and you`d have to say that he barely deserved it.

“I feel great, I came in two weeks ago and started training with the lads, they were great with me and I`m very happy to be here,” Mulumbu to the Killies website via the EDP



“I spent some time with my family in Paris after the end of last season, I didn`t really have a good season with Norwich, so I had the time to think about it this summer and now I`m good to go and looking forward to playing with my team-mates and to helping them into the top end of the table.

“I spoke to Steve Clarke, he told me everything about the club and that was a big impact for me, that he came here. I worked with him for a year-and-a-half and he is an honest manager and he trains the way he wants to play, that suited me and that was a big part of me coming here.

“I`m just looking forward to playing now and showing the real Youssouf Mulumbu. I`ve been in Norwich for two years and it didn`t really work out like I wanted, so I`ve got much to prove.”

From a Norwich point of view, Alex Neil signed a player well past his best and put him on a big salary then never played him. A perfect example of poor recruitment and an excellent example of why Norwich were relegated from the Premier League.

Youssouf had been let go by Tony Pulis – that tells you all you need to know,
