A fiercely competitive defender, who had a troubled time at Paris Saint Germain, was targeted as the player to compete for the right back slot with Kieran Trippier and soon proved a favourite with the Tottenham fans.

His youth career was spent with Lens, starting with the club in 2006 and making his debut in 2009, staying with the Ligue 1 club for three years as a professional before moving to Toulouse.  While there, he went on loan to Paris Saint Germain in 2014 for a season, with an option to buy him and the move became permanent in 2015.  His stay in the French capital was initially successful, but it ended with him criticising team-mates and calling Laurent Blanc a homophobic insult in an interview that saw him banished to the reserves.  Off the field he was involved in an assault on a police officer outside a nightclub that earned him a two month prison sentence.  He was banned form entering England because of this, so missed PSG's visit to Arsenal - a club he said he would have happily signed for.

In the summer of 2017, Tottenham moved for the right back and while the transfer was delayed by the suspended prison sentence, but a work permit was obtained and he made his debut in the Champions League group game at home to Borussia Dortmund.  The worries about his troubled background came to the fore when he was sent off in his first Premier League game at West Ham United London, for two fouls on Andy Carroll in quick succession.  However, following his suspension, he fought his way back into the team and looked a strong presence both in defence and attacking on the overlap.
