Yakir Shina (Hebrew: יקיר שנה‎; born September 25, 1985) is an Israeli footballer who plays for Liga Leumit club Hapoel Ra'anana on loan from Maccabi Tel Aviv for the 7th consecutive season. He previously was loaned to Hapoel Ramat Gan, Hapoel Acre and Maccabi Ahi Nazareth,[1] and is a defender.

Yakir began his career with Maccabi Tel Aviv. He moved to Maccabi Ahi Nazareth in 2008. In the 2008-2009 season Maccabi Ahi Nazareth played in Liga Leumit and promoted to Ligat Ha'al and the fans of the team insisted that they wanted him to stay in the team at least for one more season. In the first match in the 2009/2010 season he scored a goal and showed that he is very talented player. After the match, scouts from Alemannia Aachen were interested by his fast and "fighting" playing style. Unfortunately in the second game against Bnei Yehuda Tel Aviv F.C. he was injured in the 40th minute and missed the rest of the season.
