Aristote Nsiala (born 25 March 1992) is a DR Congo international footballer who plays as a defender for Grimsby Town in the Conference Premier.

After graduating from the youth academy of Everton in 2009, Nsiala spent time on loan at Macclesfield Town and Accrington Stanley, before joining Accrington Stanley permanently in May 2012. Released by Accrington in January 2013, he spent a brief time with Vietnamese club TDCS Dong Thap, and Southport in January 2014, before joining Grimsby Town.

Early life[edit]

Nsiala was born in Kinshasa in 1992, but moved to Paris with his mother and four siblings when he was three years old.[1] He and his family moved again in 2002, to Liverpool.[2][3] He began his football career playing for youth side Kingsley United in Toxteth,[1] and was recruited by Everton's youth academy in 2007.[2]

Club career[edit]

Everton[edit]

Nsiala rose through the ranks of Everton's youth system, and featured for the reserve team from 2009 onwards. He was an unused substitute for the Everton first-team in a UEFA Europa League dead rubber against BATE Borisov on 17 December 2009.[4]

On 8 October 2010, Nsiala joined League Two club Macclesfield Town for a one-month long youth loan,[5] and made his debut the following day in a 2–1 away defeat to Lincoln City.[6] His loan at Macclesfield was extended by a further two months by "Silkmens" boss Gary Simpson,[7] and he made 13 appearances and scored one goal during his stay at Moss Rose.[8] He scored his first goal in senior football on 16 November when he scored the opening goal of a 2–2 draw with Southport in the FA Cup.[9]

He was an unused substitute in the Premier League clash with Aston Villa at Goodison Park on 31 March 2011,[10] and said that "[during] the last few minutes when I was told to get stripped off, I actually nearly wet myself!"[11] In May 2011, he signed a new one-year contract with Everton.[12]

Accrington Stanley[edit]

Nsiala was loaned out to League Two club Accrington Stanley on 6 January 2012, signing an initial one month loan deal,[13] which was later extended until the end of the 2011–12 season.[14]

Released by Everton,[15] he signed for Paul Cook's Accrington Stanley in May 2012 on a one-year deal. He made twenty appearances for Accrington in the 2012–13 season, his contract was terminated by mutual consent on 10 January 2013 after he fell out of new manager Leam Richardson's first team plans.[16]

TDCS Dong Thap[edit]

He joined Torquay United on trial in July 2013,[17] but failed to earn a contract. He went on to play for Vietnamese club TDCS Dong Thap in the V.League 2.

Southport[edit]

Nsiala signed for Southport in January 2014, in a move that reunited him with John Coleman, his former manager at Accrington.[18] He scored his first goal for the "Sandgrounders" on 15 March, in a 4–1 win over former club Macclesfield Town at Haig Avenue.[19] He ended the 2013–14 season with 19 appearances to his name, helping Southport to finish two points above the relegation zone.

Grimsby Town[edit]

On 12 June 2014 Nsiala signed for Conference Premier side Grimsby Town on a one-year contract.[20][21]

International career[edit]

Eligible to play for DR Congo, England, Scotland and Wales,[22] Nsiala was first called up by Wales to their under-19 training squad in July 2009.[23]

He made his international debut for DR Congo in a qualifier for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations against the Seychelles on 15 June 2012, coming on as a substitute for Diego Kazadi Mutombo in a 3–0 victory.[24]
