Kévin Bru (born 12 December 1988 in Paris) is a French-born Mauritian footballer who plays for Championship side Ipswich Town.

Career[edit]

Bru trained as a youth in the INF Clairefontaine academy. He then moved to Rennes. During his time there, he went on separate loans to Châteauroux and Clermont Foot, and only made two senior appearances for Rennes. On 7 January 2010, Dijon FCO signed the attacking midfielder from Rennes until June 2011. In January 2011, after terminating his contract early with Dijon, Bru signed with fellow Ligue 2 team US Boulogne on a two-year contract. Despite visiting the infrastructures of the Bulgarian club Levski Sofia in the summer 2012, Bru decided to stay in France by joining Ligue 2 side Istres thus giving up on hopes of playing in Europa League next season.[1] After the end of campaign, he signed three-year contract with PFC Levski Sofia.

On 31 July 2014, Ipswich Town manager Mick McCarthy confirmed that Bru had signed for the club following a successful trial.[2] He scored his first goal for the club in a 4-2 victory against Birmingham City on 24 February 2015.[3]

International[edit]

Bru has made several appearances for the French U-19 team, but has never represented France with the senior team. Due to his Mauritian descent, the opportunity arose for him to represent Mauritius internationally, which he took in 2011. He earned his first cap for Mauritius on 5 June 2011, in their AFCON qualifying match against DR Congo.[4]

Personal[edit]

Kévin's parents are from Mauritius. His brother Jonathan is also a football player, he is currently plays for U.D. Oliveirense. Jonathan also represents Mauritius internationally with Mauritius national football team.
