62 12st 4lb (2008)

Assoumani was born in Nice and played for Montpellier for five seasons from 2001-2006 scoring once in forty-four appearances, including eight as substitute while they were in the French First Division for three seasons and then scored twice in thirty appearances, including four as a substitute, while they spent two seasons in Division Two. He joined German club FC Saarbrucken for the 2006-07 season and scored once in thirty-two appearances before moving on to Sportfeunde Siegen where he scored twice in twenty-seven in the 2007-08 season. He left German club Sportfreunde Siegen in June when his contract expired and, after unsuccessful trials with Sheffield United he joined Leeds as a free agent on a one month contract on 17th December 2008. He was signed on the strength of a ten day trial at Thorpe Arch which culminated in an appearance for the Leeds Reserves in a 3-1 victory over York City, in which he scored one goal with a towering header. He made his debut on the following Saturday in what proved to be his only game for United. He started the game at Right-Back but, after Lubimir Michalik was substituted by Frazer Richardson at half-time, he was switched to his favoured central defensive position. After Gary McAllister was replaced by Simon Grayson, the new Manager signed two new defenders on loan, Richard Naylor and Carl Dickinson, and he decided Assoumani was surplus to requirements and the Malian International left the club on 18th January 2009 at the end of his contract. His parents originated from the Comoros and because of this he qualified to play for Mali and gained one cap. He later had trials with Crewe Alexandra. He joined Football Conference side Wrexham on 26th March 2009 and made his debut on 7th April against Histon and he established himself as a regular and had scored one goal from forty League appearances, of which one was as a substitute and had also played one F.A. Cup game by the end of the 2009-10 season. He joined League Two side Stockport County on 2nd August 2010. He scored his first goal for County on 4th September 2010, in a 2-0 win over Macclesfield Town. It was to be his only goal for County, and when, in May 2011, he was told his contract would not be renewed, he had played thirty-six League games, including two as a substitute, together with two F.A. Cup ties, one League Cup game and one Johnstone's Paint Trophy game.
