Jeroen Lumu (born 27 May 1995 in Breda) is a Dutch footballer who will play as a winger for Petrolul Ploiești.[1]


Willem II[edit]

Born in Breda, Lumu began his football career at Willem II. He made his debut on 16 January 2012, when he was just 16 years old, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 3–1 away loss against MVV Maastricht in the Eerste Divisie.[2]

Lumu made his Eredivisie debut on 15 September 2012, coming on as a 71st minute substitute against Twente.[3] Thirteen minutes later, he scored goal, became the youngest goal-scorer for the club in Eredivisie.[4]

Ludogorets Razgrad[edit]

On 8 January 2014, Ludogorets Razgrad announced they had reached an agreement to sign Lumu from Willem II for an undisclosed fee, rumoured to be a €150,000.[5] On 9 January, he signed a long-term contract.[6] Lumu scored on his debut in a friendly game against Pirin Blagoevgrad on 16 January, netting the fourth in a 5–1 win.[7] He also netted an important last-minute goal on 30 April against CSKA Sofia to help his team to a 1–0 home win, almost clinching a third successive A PFG title for Ludogorets.[8]

SC Heerenveen[edit]

On 21 August 2014, it was announced that Lumu had signed a one-year deal with Eredivisie side SC Heerenveen.[9] Lumu made his debut for Heerenveen in the home match against Excelsior on August 23, 2014, coming on a as 70th-minute substitue for Norwegian midfielder Morten Thorsby. On October 3, 2014, after just a single appearance, it was announced Lumu's contract was terminated by the club with immediate effect. Reason was that the club and player had different views on what was deemed necessary to be a professional football player.[10] On 3 October, only just one month after signing, his contract was dissolved.

Petrolul Ploiești[edit]

On 22 January 2015, Lumu joined Romanian side Petrolul Ploiești.[11] Because he had already played for two clubs during the 2014–15 season, he is currently not eligible to play for Petrolul.
