Charley Roussel Fomen (born 9 July 1989 in Buea) is a Cameroonian footballer who plays for Parisian club Red Star F.C. as a left fullback.

Club career[edit]

Fomen began his professional career in 2007 with Mount Cameroon FC, moving in the following year to Panthère de Bangangté.[2]

On 17 April 2009, he had his first abroad experience, signing with French club Olympique de Marseille, who had already scouted the player.[3] During his first season, he did not appear in the league, as the club won the title.

On 1 July 2010, Fomen was loaned to second level's Dijon FCO, in a season-long move. He played 28 times as the club won promotion to Ligue 1.[4]

On 3 August 2011, Fomen moved to Ligue 2 side Clermont Foot on free transfer.[5] After four seasons with Clermont, Fomen was sidelined for a year through injury. He moved to Iceland and signed for Fimleikafélag Hafnarfjarðar. He was loaned by them to another Icelandic club, Leiknir Reykjavík.[4] When his father died in January 2017 he returned to Cameroon, signing a contract with Feutcheu FC.[6]

Fomen signed a two year contract with French Championnat National side Red Star in July 2017.[7]

International career[edit]

Fomen earned his first call-up for the U-17 of Cameroon on 27 July 2006, being summoned for a training camp in his hometown of Buea.[8]
