Frank Herman Nouble (born 24 September 1991) is an English footballer who plays as a striker for League One side Coventry City on loan from Ipswich Town. He started his career with the youth team at Chelsea before signing for West Ham United. He was loaned to various clubs including Swansea City and Gillingham. Nouble made two appearances for Wolverhampton Wanderers before signing for Ipswich in 2013. Nouble has played international football for England at both under-17 and under-19 levels.

Club career[edit]

West Ham United[edit]

Born in Lewisham, London, to Ivorian parents,[2] Nouble started with Chelsea in youth team football at under-12 level and was a regular in their youth team for the 2007–08 season. He made his Chelsea reserve team debut in November 2007.[3]

In July 2009 he rejected the offer of a professional contract with Chelsea and on 21 July signed a five-year contract with West Ham United for an undisclosed fee.[4][5] Nouble made his Premier League and West Ham debut in their 2–0 away win against Wolverhampton Wanderers on 15 August 2009, coming on as a substitute for Carlton Cole.[6] His first league start for West Ham came on 17 January 2010 in a 0–0 draw, away against Aston Villa.[7]

He joined West Bromwich Albion on an initial one-month loan deal on 8 February 2010.[8] He made his debut on 9 February 2010 at home against Scunthorpe United and made three appearances in total for West Bromwich Albion.[9] He then joined Swindon Town in March 2010 on a one-month emergency loan deal as a boost to Town’s striking options due to injuries to Billy Paynter and Vincent Pericard.[10] He made his debut for Swindon on 20 March against Norwich City.[11] In April 2010 his loan was extended until the end of the 2009–2010 season.[12] He had made eight appearances for Swindon.[9]

In September 2010 Nouble joined Swansea City on a three-month loan contract.[13] Manager Brendan Rogers said of him "...Frank has stature, presence, burning pace and wants to score goals. He has some Premier League experience and this is a chance for him to be part of a terrific squad and prove he can come and play and work well at this level."[14] He made his debut on 18 September in a 2–0 home win against Scunthorpe United,[15] and scored his first goal in senior football on 28 September 2010 in a 3–2 win against Watford, coming off the bench to score with his first touch of the game.[16] Following growing injury concerns at West Ham, Nouble's loan was cut short in October 2010 and he returned to Upton Park.[17] In January 2011 Nouble signed for Barnsley on loan until the end of the 2010–11 season.[18] He made his debut the following day in a 2–0 win against Preston North End.[19] In March 2011 Barnsley manager Mark Robins decided not to extend Nouble's loan with Barnsley and he returned to West Ham.[20] On 11 March 2011, Nouble joined League One club Charlton Athletic on a month-long loan.[21] He made his debut for Charlton Athletic in the 0–1 home defeat against Brentford on 12 March 2011[22] and scored his first Charlton goal on 19 March in their 2–1 away defeat against Dagenham and Redbridge.[23]

On 15 September 2011, Nouble signed on loan for Gillingham for an initial one month period,[24] scoring on his debut as the Gills won 6–1 at Hereford United.[25] Gillingham manager Andy Hessenthaler praised Nouble saying, "He looks good. He's hungry and young and has decent pedigree with his Premier League experience and gives us another option."[26] After a successful first month his loan deal was extended by a further month.[27] His loan was then extended by one final month until 17 December.[28] He played his final game in the 4–1 win over Bristol Rovers at Priestfield Stadium.

On 31 December 2011 Nouble scored his first and only goal for West Ham at Pride Park in a 2–1 defeat to Derby County. [29] Two days before the January 2012 transfer window closed, League Two club Crawley Town made a bid for Nouble,[30] which was accepted by West Ham United but rejected by the player.[31] In March 2012 Nouble joined Barnsley for a second loan period, on a one-month loan deal.[32] At the end of the 2011–12 season, Nouble was released by West Ham when his contract expired.[33]

Wolverhampton Wanderers[edit]

On 22 June 2012, Nouble signed for Championship club Wolverhampton Wanderers as a free agent, signing a two-year deal.[34] He scored his first and only goal for Wolves against Northampton Town in the League Cup on 30 August,[35] Nouble was rarely used, making just five appearances before his stay at Molineux came to an end.[36]

Ipswich Town[edit]

On 8 January 2013, Nouble signed for another Championship club when he joined Ipswich Town for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around £25,000,[37] signing an eighteen-month contract.[36] He made his debut on 12 January, in a 0–0 draw against Cardiff City,[38] and scored his first goals when he scored twice in a 3–0 win over Crystal Palace on 16 April 2013.

Loan to Coventry City[edit]

On 1 September 2014, Nouble signed for League One club Coventry City on a short-term loan until January 2015.[39]

Nouble made his debut and scored his first goal for Coventry, from a Ryan Haynes cross, on his debut for Coventry City, against Gillingham on 5 September 2014. Coventry won the game 1-0 in the club's first match back at the Ricoh Arena after an absence of 17 months.[40]

International career[edit]

Having previously been capped at England under-17 level Nouble made his first appearance for the England under-19 side on 8 October 2009 in a 3–1 victory against Finland under-19 in a UEFA under 19 championship qualifying round game in Slovenia.[41]

On 18 July 2010 Nouble scored twice for the Young Lions in their 3–2 defeat of Austria in the UEFA European Under-19 Championship being played in France.[42]
