Jérémie Bela (born 8 April 1993) is a professional footballer who plays as a winger or forward for English Championship club Birmingham City and the Angola national team. He previously played for Lens, Dijon and most recently Albacete. He represented his native France at under-16 level, and was called up for the senior teams of both his father's country of DR Congo and his mother's country of Angola, before making his debut for the latter in 2020.
Bela was born in Melun, in the Seine-et-Marne department of France. His mother is Angolan and his father is from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. He played football at AS Herblay from age six to eight and, after a two-year break, joined Ville d'Évry where he spent four years. In the 2007–08 season, he represented Viry-Châtillon in the Championnat fédéral des 14 ans. In 2006, Bela was accepted onto the three-year programme at the Clairefontaine training centre, during which he was capped by France at under-16 level. In late 2008, he told the French Football Federation website that he expected to join Ligue 2 club RC Lens when he left Clairefontaine, having been scouted by Marc Westerloppe.
