Jordan Kevin Amavi is a professional football player who was born on March 9, 1994 in Toulon, France. He is a defence player and his primary playing position is Left Back. But on several occasions, he has played in the Left Midfield position.
He is yet to make his international debut.
Amavi started playing football professionally at a young age of 11 years for his home city club, Sporting Toulon Var and continued to play for it until 2010. He then joined the Nizza Football Club and played for the club until 3 years.
In the year 2013, he left the Nizza FC and joined the OGC Nice Club (Squad B). He played in 19 matches of the 2013 Ligue 1 tournament but had a poor behaviour on the field.
He was given a Yellow Card thrice and the season was a terrible one for him with only three goals from him that entire season.
Amavi is yet to make his debut for the Senior National team of France. But, he has already represented the team in U18, U20 and U21 levels.
His U18 debut came on May 22, 2012 but he failed to score a goal in the two matches he played. The U20 matches were also more or less similar, with absence of goals and presence of Yellow Cards.
But his performance in the U21 matches was great and this enabled him to get into the OGC Nice’s squad in the 2014-15 season.
After playing for Nice, his performance graph went on a rise. He managed to score 4 goals that season in 36 matches. But his behaviour on the field went much more aggressive with 11 Yellow Cards in the tournament.
He joined Aston Villa in 2015 and showed some nice skills on the field and helped his teammates to get some goals for his team. But, as always his aggression fetched him a couple of Yellow Cards in 10 matches of the Premier League.
He was loaned to Marseille in the 2016-17 season and played 34 matches with no goals scored.
Later on, in the 2017-18 season, he joined the Marseille on a permanent deal.
