Democratic Republic of Congo and ex-West Bromwich Albion midfielder, Youssouf Mulumbu has completed his switch to Scotland's Kilmarnock FC on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

Media reports reveal that the 30-year-old, who worked with Killie manager Steve Clarke at the English Premier League club, left Norwich City in the summer and was given a two-week trial at Rugby Park.

Apart from playing in the English Premier League, Mulumbu has also starred for Paris St-Germain and Amiens in France.

"I didn't come to Kilmarnock just like that," said Mulumbu to the BBC.

"I spoke with Steve Clarke and he told me everything about the club and that was a big impact that he came here.

"I worked with him for a year and I know he's an honest manager. I know the way he trains and the way he wants to play, so it suits me and was a big affect for me coming here.

"I'm looking forward to showing the real Mulumbu. I was with Norwich for two years and it didn't work like I wanted, so I have something to prove."
