Having begun his career at Arsenal, the defender made 15 appearances for the North London side’s reserve team before joining Oldham Athletic in 2010.

During his time at Boundary Park the Frenchman made 27 appearances in League One scoring twice.

In the summer of 2011 the full-back made the move south to join Charlton Athletic as the south London side won promotion that season from League One.

The following year he made 11 Championship appearances for the Addicks during the 2012-13 season and another eight the year after.

At the start of the 2014-15 campaign Cedric moved north to join up with Doncaster Rovers, and he made 24 appearances in all competitions in his first year with the Yorkshire club.

He made 42 League One appearances the year after, before turning out 16 times in League Two for Darren Ferguson’s men last season.
