Jakup Jimmy Durmaz, formerly known as Jimmy Touma, (born 22 March 1989) is a Swedish footballer of Assyrian/Chaldean/Aramean descent playing for Olympiacos. His relatives Sharbel Touma and David Durmaz are also known footballers.
Durmaz was born in the city of Örebro, in central Sweden, to ethnic Syriac parents, his father being from Midyat in Turkey, thus eligible for Turkish citizenship, which he received upon moving to Turkey in 2012. He began playing for BK Forward in his early teens.
