A look at the explosive winger's career.

Kazenga LuaLua began his career at Newcastle United and made his Premier League debut for the Tyneside club in January 2008, as he came off the bench against Bolton Wanderers at St James' Park.

The winger signed permanently for the Seagulls in 2011 after three successful loan spells at the club, ending with their 2010/11 League One-winning season, with LuaLua hitting the back of the net four times during that campaign.

LuaLua has gone on to score another 18 goals in an Albion shirt, with his equalising free kick against Liverpool at Anfield one of his most memorable strikes.

He began the 2015/16 season in blistering form, scoring three goals and claiming two assists in August, which led to him winning the Sky Bet Player of the Month Award.

LuaLua struggled with a number of injuries after that point, before joining Queens Park Rangers on a loan deal towards the end of Albion's promotion-winning campaign.
