The club announced that Mulumbu wouldn't be retained for the 2015-16 season.
The club wished Mulumbu and fellow released players Chris Baird and Jason Davidson well in their future endeavors following their releases after the final match of the season. None of the three appeared likely to play a significant role next season as Tony Pulis looks to continue re-shaping the roster to suit his style of play. Mulumbu may find interest from among the newly promoted sides. May 26 - 10:50 AM

After picking up an injury while at the African Cup of Nations, Youssouf Mulumbu is close to full health and could feature in the Baggies' Week 26 match at Sunderland.

Tony Pulis has a lot of central midfield options to choose from between Craig Gardner, Claudio Yacob, Mulumbu, Darren Fletcher, and James Morrison. Given that the other four are fully fit, it seems unlikely that Pulis will rush Mulumbu back. A bench role in Week 26 and then a battle for playing time with the rest of the group is very much in Mulumbu's future.

Youssouf Mulumbu will have a scan today after the West Brom midfielder was stretchered off during DR Congo's disappointing goalless draw against Cape Verde on Thursday in the African Cup of Nations.

Mulumbu was said to have felt pain in his hamstring and any tear at this stage of the tournament would certainly end his involvement in the competition. This latest setback - his third muscular problem of the season having already missed games in September and December - will be a concern for new baggies boss Tony Pulis who will see Mulumbu as a pivotal part of his side’s chances of Premier League survival. With Georgios Samaras, Sebastian Blanco and Silvestre Varela moving during the window and with the club open to offers for summer signing Brown Ideye all of a sudden the squad is beginning to look a little stretched although there was better news regarding Jonas Olsson [Achilles] who is expected to return to training next.

He certainly ins't the biggest name out there but it wasn't long ago that Mulumbu had a huge phantom point week for the Baggies.

Having recovered from his hamstring issue that kept him out for West Brom's Week 4 capitulation to Everton Youssouf Mulumbu is available again. "Available" doesn't exactly fill you with confidence that he'll be ready to go and a trip to White Hart Lane doesn't scream "pick me" either. If you are in an auction/draft format then you might be very happy to see the Baggies' midfielder enforcer returning to the line-up.

Youssouf Mulumbu became the third West Bromich Albion player to pick-up an injury during this international break when the midfielder limped off after just 21 minutes of his country’s home defeat to Cameroon in the African Cup of Nations 2015 qualifying competition.

Mulumbu joins Ben Foster and Graham Dorrans who have returned to club for further assessment and treatment. Although the severity of his hamstring injury is not yet known the DR Congo captain is now a serious doubt for next weekend’s British Premier League match-up with Everton. However coach Alan Irvine was able to provide a positive update on the injured pair who returned from England and Scotland duty respectively - goalkeeper Foster jarred his thumb but fortunately "There isn’t a lot of swelling or bleeding," a good indicator that the injury is not serious while Dorrans has a bruised heel which should settle down in 3/4 days "I will be surprised if he has still got problems [for game week four]." The trio will be monitored closely over the next 72 hours.

Not ordinarily a fantasy stand-out, Youssouf Mulumbu put up 18 points in the Yahoo format despite only 3 in the game as West Brom got a clean sheet.

It's hard to say how many clean sheets the Baggies will get this year but if Joel Ward All-Star Youssouf Mulumbu continues to put up great phantom point numbers like he did in Week 2, they'll definitely have more than expected. With eight tackles won, six passes intercepted and a blocked shot he got to 18 fantasy points in the Yahoo format despite not getting credit for the clean sheet as a midfielder and not scoring any attacking-related points. Strong effort from the holding midfielder.

Youssef Mulumbu scored in the 82nd minute to give Pepe Mel his first Premier League win and West Brom three critical points as they look to avoid relegation.

Swansea started about as quickly as you can start with a second minute goal. Given West Brom's miserable form you'd expect that might have been all they needed to get the three points and push the Baggies closer to the drop. Shockingly, that was the last goal the Swans would get on the day. Even more surprisingly, first Stephane Sessegnon and then Youssouf Mulumbu scored for traveling Albion to give them the points and give them a little breathing room from 18th place Sunderland who picked up a point from Norwich.
