Dylan Daniel Mahmoud Bronn was born on 19 June, 1995 in France, and he is of Tunisian descent through his mother. Dylan is a professional footballer who currently plays for Gent and the Tunisia national football team. He plays as a central defender. Before becoming professional, Bronn played in the French lower leagues with AS Cannes.
Bronn was signed by Niort in the summer of 2016, initially as a reserve team player on an amateur contract. However, first team manager Denis Renaud gave Daniel the chance to play in three of the side’s pre-season friendly matches.
His performances in these games led Renaud to hand Bronn his professional debut on 29 July 2016 in the 0–0 draw with RC Lens at the Stade René Gaillard. Over the course of the 2016–17 season, he became a regular starter for the first team, forming a central defensive partnership with Jérémy Choplin. On 18 October 2016, Mahmoud was given a three-year professional contract by Niort.
Bronn was called up to the Tunisia national football team in March 2017. He won his first cap for Tunisia in a friendly match against Morocco on 28 March 2017, playing the whole match in a 0–1 defeat.
In May 2018 he was named in Tunisia’s preliminary 29 man squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. He was selected in the final 23.
