Kévin Olivier Soni (born 17 April 1998) is a Cameroonian professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Villarreal CF B on loan from Girona FC as an attacking midfielder.[2]

Club career[edit]

Soni was born in Douala, but moved to France at early age. A FC Girondins de Bordeaux youth graduate, he made his first team debut at 21 January 2015 by replacing Nicolas Maurice-Belay in a 1–2 Coupe de France defeat against Paris Saint-Germain FC.[3] On 8 September 2016, he was loaned to Pau FC for one year.[4]

On 21 July 2017, Soni signed for Girona FC, being immediately assigned to the farm team in Segunda División B.[5] The following 22 January, he extended his contract until 2022.[6]

On 8 April 2018, Soni made his first team – and La Liga – debut, coming on as a late substitute for Portu in a 0–5 loss against Real Sociedad. On 31 August of the following year, after Girona's relegation, he was loaned to RCD Espanyol's reserves in the third division, for one year.[7]

On 27 August 2020, Soni agreed to a one-year loan deal with another reserve team, Villarreal CF B also in division three.[8]
