Allan-Roméo Nyom (born 10 May 1988) is a Cameroonian professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Granada CF on loan from Udinese Calcio as a right back.

Club career[edit]

Born in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, Nyom only played amateur football in the country, competing in the reserves championship with AS Nancy-Lorraine and appearing for AC Arles-Avignon in the Championnat National. In the 2009 summer he was signed by Udinese Calcio in Italy,[1] being immediately loaned to Granada CF in Spain as part of the partnership agreement between both clubs.

Nyom quickly became an undisputed first-choice with the Andalusia side, helping it promote from Segunda División B to La Liga in just two seasons.[2] He made his debut in the latter competition on 27 August 2011, in a 0–1 home loss against neighbours Real Betis.[3]

Nyom renewed his contract with Udinese in late May 2013, but continued playing with Granada.[4]

International career[edit]

Nyom opted to represent Cameroon internationally, and gained his first cap on 11 November 2011 in a 3–1 friendly win with Sudan. He was selected by manager Volker Finke for his 2014 FIFA World Cup squad,[5] making his debut in the tournament on 23 June against Brazil as the Lions Indomptables were already eliminated from the knockout phase after two losses: he provided the cross for Joel Matip's equalizer shortly before the 30-minute mark, but the hosts eventually won 4–1.[6]
