Allan-Roméo Nyom (born 10 May 1988) is a Cameroonian professional footballer who plays for English club Watford as a right back.

He spent most of his career with Granada, appearing in 220 competitive games during six seasons, four in the top-flight La Liga.

A Cameroonian international since 2011, Nyom represented the nation at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Club career[edit]

Early years / Granada[edit]

Born in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France, Nyom only played amateur football in the country, competing in the reserves championship with Nancy and appearing for Arles-Avignon in the Championnat National. In the summer of 2009, he was signed by Italian club Udinese,[2] being immediately loaned to Granada in Spain as part of the partnership agreement between both clubs.

Nyom quickly became an undisputed first-choice with the Andalusian side, helping it promote from Segunda División B to La Liga in just two seasons.[3] He made his debut in the latter competition on 27 August 2011, in a 0–1 home loss against neighbours Real Betis.[4]

Nyom renewed his contract with Udinese in late May 2013, but continued playing with Granada.[5] He scored his first and only goal in the Spanish top flight on 25 October 2014, putting the visitors ahead in a 1–1 draw at Eibar.[6]

Watford[edit]

On 14 July 2015, Nyom signed for newly promoted Premier League team Watford on a four-year contract from Udinese.[7] He made his debut on 8 August, starting in a 2–2 draw at Everton.[8]

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,[9] 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. In the match, he provided the cross for Joël Matip's equalizer shortly before the 30-minute mark, but the hosts eventually won 4–1.[10]
