Former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Jacques Maghoma joined Blues in June 2015 on a two-year deal, with a further one-year option in the Club's favour.

Although Maghoma was born in Zaire, he is a full Democratic Republic of Congo international.

He began his playing career in England with Tottenham Hotspur’s Academy in 2003.

He was a regular with the Spurs reserve side before leaving White Hart Lane in 2009 to join Burton Albion, where Gary Rowett was the assistant manager to Paul Peschisolido.

The powerful ball-playing midfielder, who can operate on either flank or off the front, enjoyed a successful spell with the Brewers. It culminated in him being named in the League Two PFA team of the year at the end of the 2012–2013 campaign following his 18 goal contribution.

After four years at the Pirelli Stadium, during which time he made 172 appearances and scored 32 goals, he made the switch to Sheffield Wednesday in the summer of 2013.

In his two seasons at Hillsborough he made 66 appearances and found the back of the net four times, before being released by the Owls.

During a successful first season at Blues, Maghoma made a total of 44 appearances and scored six goals.
