After starting out in his hometown Oullins, and a spell in training at the CREPS of Vichy, Jean-Bryan Boukaka joined Stade Rennais in June 2007. Aged 15, this young versatile attacker shone with his pace and power. He was expected to become professional, but became victim of the high level of competition for places in his last year as an apprentice in 2011/2012, falling behind Quasmi, Diarra and Sané in the pecking order. Even if he didn’t always figure in the starting line-up, he still managed to score six goals in 24 appearances. After an encouraging trial with Angers, he ended up signing for Tours in Ligue 2 in June 2012.
