Born in Cameroon but raised in France, Bong started his career with Ligue 1 stalwarts FC Metz in 2006.

However, he failed to establish himself in the Lorraine region and was loaned out to second tier outfit Tours FC for the 2008/09 campaign.

The 22-year-old subsequently impressed to catch the eye of Valenciennnes, prompting a return to the premier French division.

He went on to play 20 games for Les Atheniens this past season and earned his first international call-up when Paul Le Guen named his provisional 30-man World Cup squad.
