Club career[edit]

Tottenham Hotspur[edit]

Born in Lubumbashi, Zaire, Maghoma began his career at Tottenham Hotspur, joining the youth academy in 2003. He progressed to the reserve side, making numerous appearances, although he suffered a number of injuries during his time at the club. He went on trial to Leeds United, but was not offered a permanent deal.

Burton Albion[edit]

He was released by Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp in June 2009 and, after short trials at Burton Albion and Hereford United, he decided to join Burton Albion on a two-year contract.[2] He made his first team debut for Burton on 8 August 2009 in a 3–1 away defeat to Shrewsbury Town.[3] His first Burton goal came in a 2–0 home win against Barnet on 19 October 2009.[4]

At the end of the 2012–2013 season Maghoma was named in the Football League Two PFA team of the year, the first Burton Albion player to do so.[citation needed]

Sheffield Wednesday[edit]

In June 2013 Maghoma signed a two-year contract with Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.[5] Maghoma's first appearance for the Owls came against newly relegated QPR.

International career[edit]

Maghoma was called into the DR Congo team for some post-season friendlies in May 2010.[6] He made his debut for his country's B team against Saudi Arabia's B team on 20 May, and scored in that game.[7]
