Jakup Jimmy Durmaz (born 22 March 1989), formerly known as Jimmy Touma, is a Swedish footballer who plays as a winger for French club Toulouse and the Swedish national team.

He began his career at BK Forward and moved in 2008 to Malmö FF, where he won the Allsvenskan title in 2010. He had two seasons each with Gençlerbirliği of Turkey and Olympiacos of Greece, winning two Superleague Greece titles and one Greek Cup.

Durmaz made his senior international debut for Sweden in 2011. He was part of their squads for UEFA Euro 2016 and the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Early life[edit]

Durmaz was born in Örebro, into a Syriac Orthodox family.[3][4] His father migrated from Midyat in southeastern Turkey.[4][5] He began playing for BK Forward in his early teens.

Club career[edit]

Malmö FF[edit]

Touma came to Malmö FF from BK Forward in July 2008. He made his Allsvenskan debut on 14 July 2008 against Hammarby IF. Prior to the 2009 season, he decided to switch his surname to Durmaz. His breakthrough came in the 2010 league winning season when he started in 15 games and played 27. Durmaz scored the opening goal against A.C. Milan in an exhibition game on 14 August 2011.[6] Durmaz continued to the play regularly for the club during the 2011 season and finished the season with 27 league matches played and four goals scored.

Gençlerbirliği[edit]

In June 2012, Durmaz signed a three-year contract with Turkish club Gençlerbirliği S.K.[7][8]

Olympiacos[edit]

Greek Superleague club Olympiacos signed Durmaz in August 2014.[9] He scored his first goal for the club with a close-range effort against OFI Crete on 14 September. His first hat-trick came in an 8-0 win over Tyrnavos in a Greek Cup game on 29 January 2015.[10]

Toulouse[edit]

Durmaz moved to Ligue 1 club Toulouse in August 2016, for a fee in the region of €2.5 million.[11][12] On 26 August 2017, Durmaz scored two goals (both of them penalties) in Toulouse's 3–2 Ligue 1 home win over Stade Rennais to bring his 2017–18 Ligue 1 goal tally to three and improve on the two Ligue 1 goals he scored in the whole of the 2016–17 Ligue 1 season.[13]

International career[edit]

Durmaz made his debut for Sweden on 8 February 2011 in a friendly game against Cyprus.[14] Durmaz was selected for the annual training camp for the Sweden national team in January 2012. The squad selection for the camp traditionally feature the best Swedish players in domestic and other Scandinavian leagues.[15]

He was named in Sweden's 23-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia,[16] but only made one appearance in the tournament, coming on as a substitute against Germany in the group stage.[17][18] After conceding a last-minute free kick in the game, from which Toni Kroos scored to beat Sweden 2–1, Durmaz was subjected to racial abuse and threats of violence on social media.[19] In the opinion of Lund University's Professor of Broadband Communication, Per Ödling, almost all of the most abusive posts were bot generated, rather than from genuine users.[20]
