Cameroon international Lucien Mettomo joined City in £1.5m deal from St Etienne in October 2001, and made his debut as a substitute in the 6-0 thrashing of Birmingham City. A powerful, quick centre half, Mettomo has been popular with the fans. Despite som impressive displays, he only played 4 games for City during the 2002/2003 season.

During the Confederations Cup in France June 2003, Mettomo played every minute for his country, including the final against the hosts France, where he did a good job man-marking Thierry Henry. That caught the eye to several managers in England, and in early July a £1m bid from Wolves was turned down by City manager Kevin Keegan, who apparently wants to stick to Mettomo as cover for his back-line.

August 29th 2003: Defender, Lucien Mettomo has now completed his move to German club, Kaiserslautern.
The on/off deal to take Cameroon international, Lucien Mettomo to Bundesliga side Kaiserslautern has finally been completed. The defender, who made his debut for the Blues in November 2001 and made a total of thirty-one League and Cup appearances for City, has moved in a £500,000 deal.
