Career Summary

Option declined following 2019 season.

Primarily a left winger, though comfortable centrally or on the right, the speedy Lamah was brought to Dallas in 2017 to help fill the gap left by Fabian Castillo's departure in 2016. He is dangerous in the open field and clean in front of net. He'll look to be a major contributor for FC Cincinnati in 2019.

INTERNATIONAL: Though born in the Ivory Coast, Lamah chose to represent Belgium internationally. He appeared 20 times for the Red Devils at the youth level before making his senior debut in a 2010 World Cup qualifying match. He currently has five senior international caps.

OUTSIDE MLS: Lamah got his start at the age of 16 at Belgian second-division outfit CS Visé before moving to Anderlecht, where he won the 2006-2007 Belgian title. He then enjoyed successful stints at Roda JC (Netherlands), Le Mans (France) and Osasuna (Spain) before moving to English Premier League side Swansea City on an 18-month loan at the beginning of 2013. He would make 14 appearances for the Swans and score two league goals during that stint, and helped the team capture the 2012-13 League Cup title. He signed with Hungary's Ferencvaros ahead of the 2014-15 European season, becoming a starter for them and helping them capture a cup double in 2015 and the club's first league title in 12 years in the 2015-16 season.
