Michael Lamey (born 29 November 1979) is a Dutch former professional footballer who played as a right back.

Club career[edit]

Born in Amsterdam, Lamey began his professional career with RKC Waalwijk, before making moves to PSV Eindhoven, MSV Duisburg and Arminia Bielefeld. After his transfer from PSV to Duisburg, the two teams played in a pre-season friendly and Lamey scored an own goal in favour of his previous team. The club was relegated at the end of his first season. He left Arminia Bielefeld at the end of the 2009–10 season following their failure to regain instant promotion back to the German Bundesliga.

On 9 August 2010, Lamey joined Leicester City after impressing the club in a two-week trial.[1] On 11 August, he was part of the reserves squad that won the Totesport.com Cup in a 2–1 win over Oldham Athletic reserves at Quorn FC.[2]
