Archange Nkumu (born 5 November 1993 in Tottenham, London, England) is a defender who formerly played for Chelsea's academy.


Pre-Chelsea career

Archange joined Chelsea at the age of ten.

Chelsea career

Archange proved a versatile option throughout his teenage career at Chelsea, lining up across the defensive line and in midfield. He travelled with youth team squads to assorted overseas tournaments, and was included as a schoolboy on the club's 2010 Dallas Cup trip.

As a first-year scholar, he mainly played in the centre of defence, although he also saw time in the centre of midfield. He made his reserve debut during the 2010-11 season and scored his first goal away to Manchester United in April 2011.

He struggled for playing time in the first half of the 2011-12 season, with the majority of his appearances coming for the Under-18 team in a midfield capacity. He made a number of appearances in the second half of the season though, and started in the Second Leg of the 2011-12 FA Youth Cup Final.

In August 2012 he joined Yeovil Town on loan for a month as cover for fellow Blues loanee Rohan Ince but played just 8 minutes before returning to Cobham. A second loan spell would take him to Colchester United for a three-month spell, but with that proving unsuccessfull too, he began to search for a new club with his release from Chelsea already confirmed. Trials at West Brom and Granada came to nothing, and he departed the Blues in June 2013.


Archange has not represented England at any level. He is also eligible to play for DR Congo.
