Kévin Mickael Junior Gomis (born 20 January 1989) is a French professional footballer who plays for Scottish club Dundee as a central defender.

Football career[edit]

Born in Paris, Gomis started his professional career with En Avant de Guingamp, but only played officially with the reserves. In the 2009 summer he joined manager Victor Zvunka at Portuguese club Associação Naval 1º de Maio, signing a two-year contract.

Gomis appeared in his first Primeira Liga game on 29 August 2009, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–3 home loss against FC Porto. He finished his first season with 23 games (all starts) as the Figueira da Foz side ranked in a best-ever eighth position.

In late 2011, after his link to Naval expired, Gomis returned to his country and signed for three years with OGC Nice.[1] He made his Ligue 1 debut on 6 August, coming on as a second half substitute in a 1–3 home defeat against Olympique Lyonnais.[2]

Gomis joined Nottingham Forest in January 2014, on loan for the remainder of the campaign.[3] He made his only appearance for the English on 8 March, starting and being booked in a 0–1 loss at Barnsley for the Football League Championship, being subsequently left out of the selection reckoning reportedly due to caretaker manager Gary Brazil's opinion that his attitude was unconstructive.[4]

On 19 August 2016, Gomis signed for Scottish Premiership club Dundee on a one-year contract.[5]
