Club career[edit]

Brentford[edit]

After beginning his youth career at the Evolution Sports & Health Academy in London, Bohui entered the youth system at Brentford in 2011.[4] He progressed through the youth ranks and was part of the U15 team which won the Junior Globe at the 2014 Milk Cup.[5] He made his youth team debut during the 2014–15 season and scored two goals in 12 appearances.[6] Bohui signed a scholarship deal at the end of the 2014–15 season and scored 9 goals in 22 appearances for the youth team during the 2015–16 season.[7] He also broke into the Development Squad, making 13 appearances and scoring one goal.[8] Due to the closure of the Brentford academy at the end of the 2015–16 season,[9] Bohui had his contract terminated by mutual consent on 28 July 2016.[10]

Manchester United[edit]

On 7 August 2016, Bohui joined the academy at Manchester United on a three-year contract.[11] He progressed through the U18 team to the club's U23 team, but he twice rejected a new four-year contract and was released when his contract expired at the end of the 2018–19 season.[12][13]

NAC Breda[edit]

On 5 July 2019, Bohui moved to the Netherlands to join Eerste Divisie club NAC Breda on a two-year contract, with the option of two further years.[14] A knee injury suffered that same month kept him out until November 2019 and he made four appearances before the 2019–20 season was ended early.[3][15][16] Bohui was transfer-listed in June 2020,[17] but he began the 2020–21 season with four appearances and one goal,[3] prior to his contract being terminated by mutual consent on 5 October 2020.[18]

Colchester United[edit]

On 10 October 2020, Bohui returned to England to sign a contract with League Two club Colchester United on a free transfer.[19]

International career[edit]

Bohui is eligible to play for England, France or Ivory Coast at international level.[20] He won three England U17 caps during the second half of the 2015–16 season,[21] with two coming during the Young Lions' unsuccessful 2016 UEFA European U17 Championship campaign.[20]

Personal life[edit]

Bohui was born to an English mother and an Ivorian father.[20]
