French football[edit]

Doumbia played youth football with Olympique Noisy-le-Sec, JS Noisy-le-Sec, FC Les Lilas and RSC Montreuil. Aged 17 he signed a contract with Ligue 2 club LB Châteauroux in summer 2007.[1] He played for their reserve team of LB Châteauroux in the French Fifth Division, playing just one first team game for the club; on 20 February 2009 against EA Guingamp.[2]

After two years with LB Châteauroux Doumbia left to sign for Rennes on 19 June 2009.[3] He made his debut for team in the Coupe de la Ligue against FC Sochaux on 23 September 2009.[4] During the 2010–11 and 2011–12 seasons he became a more regular player in the Rennes line-up, making a total of 59 appearances for the club to date.


On 30 July 2012, Doumbia initially joined English side Wolverhampton Wanderers on a planned season-long loan deal, with view to a permanent move.[5] On 13 November 2012 Wolves announced that Doumbia had signed a permanent contract to keep him at the club until summer 2016.[6] He made 35 appearances in total during the season as the club ended up becoming relegated to League One.

After this relegation, new Wolves manager Kenny Jackett stated that Doumbia was not likely to feature in his plans for the new season.[7] On 6 August 2013 he left Wolves to join Ligue 1 club Valenciennes on a season-long loan.[8]
