Dimitri Foulquier (born 23 March 1993) is a French footballer who plays for Spanish club Granada CF and the France national under-21 football team as a right back.[1]

Club career[edit]

Born in Sarcelles, Foulquier was raised in Capesterre, a commune in the overseas region and department of Guadeloupe.[2]

Rennes[edit]

After excelling with local clubs in the commune, he was spotted by Rennes scout Patrick Rampillon and, subsequently, joined the professional club in July 2007.[2][3]

Foulquier was awarded the Best Academy Player award for the 2009–10 season.[1] After appearing on the bench in matches during the 2010–11 season,[2] he was promoted to the senior team by manager Frédéric Antonetti for the 2011–12 season. Foulquier was assigned the number 24 shirt and made his professional debut on 2 October 2011 in a league match against Lille, starting but being replaced on the half-time in the eventual 0–2 away loss.[4]

Granada[edit]

On 27 August 2013 Foulquier was loaned to La Liga side Granada.[5] He made his debut in the competition on 30 September, replacing Michael Pereira in a 2–0 home win against Athletic Bilbao.[6]

On 25 May 2014 the Andalusians bought Foulquier outright, for a €2 million fee, with the player signing a five-year deal.[7]

International career[edit]

Foulquier is a France youth international, having represented his country at under-18 through under-21 levels, including winning the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup, in which he scored in the penalty shoot-out in the final.[8]
