Early career

Kapo joined Juventus from French club Auxerre in the summer of 2004, but he struggled to adapt to life in Turin and as a result was loaned to Monaco for the 05-06 season.

Kapo spent the 2006–07 season on loan at Primera Liga outfit Levante, scoring five goals in thirty appearances for the Spanish club.

Birmingham City

Kapo signed for Birmingham City on 29 June 2007 for a fee of £3 million.[1] He scored on his Premier League debut against Chelsea on 12 August 2007.[2]

Wigan Athletic

Kapo signed for Wigan Athletic on 16 July 2008, signing a three-year deal for a fee reported as £3.5 million, a move which reunited him with former manager Steve Bruce.[3] He scored his first goal for Wigan in a 4–1 Carling Cup win over Ipswich Town on 24 September 2008,[4] and then scored his first league goal in a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on 28 February 2009.[5]

Boulogne
