Football Career

Yannis began his career with his local club Red Star Paris. In early 2004, he was one of three Red Star players selected to attend the prestigious Clairefontaine academy. After spending three years there, he signed with Nord-based side Lille OSC.

Despite reported interests from Italian sides Roma, Torino, and Udinese[1], Yannis signed his first professional contract with Lille in June 2008. The contract is for three years. For the 2008-09 season, he was placed on Lille's first-team squad, though he would not be handed a number. He instead continued playing in the reserves. He made his professional football debut for Lille on January 23, 2009, a day before his 18th birthday, in a Coupe de France match against USL Dunkerque coming on as a substitute in the 76th minute.[2]

International Career

Yannis is a France youth international having played for the U-16s, U-17s, and is currently playing on the France U-18 squad. He was apart of the U-17 squad that finished runner-ups at the 2008 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship.
