Jean-Clair Todibo has enjoyed the kind of start to his career that the majority of footballers can only dream about.

Only this season did the 19-year-old make his debut in the top flight for Toulouse, yet already he has ended up joining Barcelona having played just 10 games for the French side.

He secured a move to Barca after a deal was struck between the clubs on deadline day in January, having initially agreed to join the Spanish giants at the end of the season at the expiration of his contract.
