Ghyslain Vedeux was a young forward, who was brought to England by Spurs from Sochaux, but failed to progress beyond the reserves.
Born in Cameroon, he moved to France as an eight year old and was a member of the French national academy at Clairefontaine.
Vedeux started his football career with Fontenay Foot Vendee in 1994 and was with that club as a youngster until 1998, when he was signed by Sochaux. The nippy forward spent two years with the club as a professional before he was spotted by Tottenham, who signed him in 2000 to join the Academy on a two year deal. The French forward was skilful and quick, but lacked the physical presence to stand up to the physical nature of opposition defences.
In his first season he played for both the Under-17s and Under-19s, moving up to the reserves for the occasional game the following season.
He left Spurs in 2003 and joined Stoke City on trial, but failing to make an impression there, he signed for Servette in Switzerland, but then moved on quickly to Second Division Belgian side Royal Excelsior de Virton. His career after Spurs saw him move into a midfield position and after completing the season in Belgium, moved back home to France to play for Le Championat side Le Mans, but mainly Ghyslain was stuck in the reserves. Not getting first team football, he decided to drop down to the French Third Division with Tours, where he played in the side that gained promotion to Division 2 in 2005-06.
The following season saw him playing regularly in the Tours first team, but a disagreement with the coach led to him leaving the club to join USAEB Avoine back in the Third Division. Enjoying two seasons with the club, Vedeux than signed for Ecommoy for the 2009-10 season and while playing gained his UEFA B coaching diploma.
Following his spell at Ecommoy, he moved into coaching at FC Ouest Tourangeau 37, where he was the Under-13s coach, studying for his Masters in Psychology (specialising in clinical psychology) at the University of Francois Rabelais in Tours at the same time.
Since July 2011, Ghyslain has been working as first team coach at St. Pierre des Corps and works as a Counselling Psychologist for the Reseau PSF organisation.
