In November 2011 he went to Turkey where he joined Süper Lig side Eskişehirspor on trials. He developed a good relation with club's coach Michael Skibbe and the prospects of Suma getting a contract looked good, however the sudden departure of Skibbe from Eskişehirspor left Suma with his future uncertain and Serbian side FK Jagodina moved in and offered him a contract.
Lamin Suma made his Serbian SuperLiga debut on March 31, 2012, as a substitute in a 21-round match visiting FK Vojvodina, a 0-0 draw. He made a total of 3 appearances in the 2011–12 Serbian SuperLiga. In August 2012 he agreed to a loan to Montenegrin First League side FK Jedinstvo Bijelo Polje where he played the 2012–13 season.
After playing in Europe, Suma moved across the Atlantic to the United States and, in March 2016, he signed a short-term deal until summer with Philadelphia Fury. Philadelphia Fury ended the season as champions, and Suma won the best player award of the 2016 Spring season of the American Soccer League. As result, Suma signed with Sacramento Republic FC on December 5, 2016, a club playing a level higher, in the United Soccer League.
Lamin Suma has played for all categories of the Sierra Leonian youth national team, namely, the U-17, U-20 and U-23 teams. He was the captain of the Sierra Leone U-20 team. On May 19, 2011, he received a call by Christian Cole to the Sierra Leone national football team however he was latter dropped by Lars Matsson.
